Through clothing, films, photos and interviews, the exhibition sheds light on how fashion to this day has hailed, borrowed and stolen from the maritime style and culture. Fashion has been used to express patriotism, rebellion and sexuality – and put themes such as gender, identity, climate and sustai
nability on the political agenda. In the exhibition, we follow the sea and seafaring’s path into highstreet fashion and all the way to the international fashion scene. This is done through a unique collection of both (humble) and unique garments and works of art.
The exhibition features a selection of young designers as well as a large number of the biggest names on the international fashion scene, such as Iris Van Herpen, Jean Paul Gaultier, Balmain, Craig Green, Maison Margiela, Thom Browne & many more.
(Juel) "My Piece was an interpretation of the shipwrecked sailor - Lost at the bottom of the ocean the sailor slowly becomes one with the cargo of the sunken ship. Wrapped in the sails and the knotted ropes , body , materiality and the maritime craftsmanship merge and become one.
