Exhibition: Kimono, au bonheur des dames

Until May 22nd, 2017, the Guimet museum is welcoming one of the key elements of the Japanese fashion: the Kimono. The visitors are invited to discover the history of this garment and its accessories from the Edo period (1603-1868) to this day, its evolution, as well as its reinterpretations whether it is in the Japanese or the current French fashion. Kimonos from the house Matsuzakaya founded in 1611 are exposed. The retrospective also reveals the impact which this garment had on contemporary designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Paul Gaultier, Kenzo Takada, Yohji Yamamoto or even, Frank Sorbier. This event is available near the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni, just like other exhibitions in the city, like “Dalida” at the Palais Galliera or “Rodin” at the Grand Palais.

Exhibition “Kimono, au bonheur des dames”, from February 22nd to May 22nd, 2017.
Open every day except on Tuesday, from 10a.m. to 6p.m.
Full rate: €9.50 / Concessions: €7.
