Tennis & Fashion

In May 2015, the Roland Garros museum is hosting a temporary exhibition on the theme of Tennis and Fashion.

From the tennis courts to the Haute Couture catwalks, the exhibition weaves a guiding thread between these two worlds, which have inspired each other and today continue to be enriched through their reciprocal influences.

The exhibition opens with a retrospective of city and sporting outfits, from the 1900s to the present, focusing on the major changes in fashion in each era.

A thematic presentation bears witness to the ties formed between sport and fashion. It allows visitors to discover the tennis outfit designed by Elsa Schiaparelli for Lili de Alvarez. In 1931, Schiaparelli created culottes and a removable tunic for the Spanish player, an innovation that made the fashion designer a sportswear pioneer. The tennis player wore this outfit – which was scandalous in its day – for the International French Open at Roland Garros and then the tournament at Wimbledon. The exhibition displays unpublished photos of this design and the original press release.

‘Mannequins : from the artist’s studio to fetish object’

The exhibition ‘Mannequins : from the artist’s studio to fetish object’ at the Bourdelle Museum in Paris retraces the history of this ‘Unsettling strange’ studio secret until July 12th, 2015.

With its dramatic design this exhibition includes rare artist’s mannequins dating from the 18th century to present day including Pascal and Pascaline.

Made by Maison Sennelier they were the two favorite mannequins of Elsa Schiaparelli who showcased this couple made of wood in her shop windows of the 21 place Vendôme and even ‘married’ them.  All Paris marveled at their surrealistic displays and they rapidly became the mascots of the Schiaparelli Haute Couture seamstresses.

The exhibition is lifting the veil on the relationship between artist and mannequin with nearly 160 exhibits.
