Workwear – Triennale Milan
Milan-based architect, designer and artist Alessandro Guerriero has been called in to curate this fashion-meets-conceptual-art show titled ‘Workwear’ (‘Abiti da Lavoro’ in Italian) – which, as its title suggests, showcases work uniforms and working clothes, albeit seen from a different angle. With conventional workwear as its starting point, the exhibition sets out to explore the wider concept of fashion as part of an individual’s actual identity and the idea that ‘what we wear defines who we are’.
In the exhibition WORKWEAR work of: Guda Koster, Melle Jaarsma, Vivienne Westwood, Bertjan Pot, Issey Miyake, Erwin Wurm, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Andrea Branzi e.a.
