Drawing inspiration from its founder’s fascination with 20th-century avant-garde art movement, Italian brand Salvatore Ferragamo  has decided to curate an exhibition at the Ferragamo Museum to explore the relationship between art and fashion.

Set to open for public on the 18th of May 2016, the exhibition “Across Art and Fashion” will feature iconic clothing and accessories from both public and private Italian and international collections.

Some of the highlighted showcases include the dress designed by Elsa Schiaparelli in the Thirties in collaboration with Salvador Dalì, the Yves Saint Laurent dress inspired by the paintings of Piet Mondrian, as well as the installation of photographs of Andy Warhol, Altered Images.

Conceived and curated by Maria Luisa Frisa, Enrica Morini, Stefania Ricci and Alberto Salvadori; and organised Fondazione Ferragamo and Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, the exhibition also features a rich catalogue that includes more than just clothing and accessories.

The “Across Art and Fashion” exhibition will be open from 18th May 2016 to 7 April 2017 at Museo Salvatore Ferragamo in Florence, Italy. For more information, please visit its official website www.ferragamo.com/museo.
