With the point of departure in Swedish clothing traditions and international impulses and based on eleven themes, Stockholm’s Liljevalchs Konsthall presents a utopian world focused on innovative thinking and imaginative fashion. With specially commissioned garments by Swedish fashion designers and international creations, the exhibition will be a visual feast.


Presenting fashion’s possibilities and highlighting human creativity, the exhibition, «Utopian Bodies: Fashion Looks Forward» aims to inspire visitors to search for their good place, their vision of the future.


The exhibition, which consists of over 200 objects, images and videos, invites visitors to embark on a captivating journey between different worlds. The individually designed galleries are inspired by various utopian ideas – some realised and others not. But above all, they highlight the social promise of technology and creativity.


This show also includes several garments from one of the world’s largest private collections of Alexander McQueen, Prada’s sparkling rainbow look from spring/summer 2014 and a look from Rick Owen’s autumn/winter 2015 collection that caused a media stir due to the strategically cut holes revealing the models’ genitals. A number of films directed by, for example, Geoffrey Lillemon, Nick Knight/SHOWstudio and Lucy McRae will be screened throughout the galleries. Stephen Jones Millinery’s almost surreal hats, and Maiko Takeda’s headwear – seen on the artwork of Björk’s latest album – will be on display. Visitors will also encounter objects by a host of international designers, such as KENZO, Gucci, Acne, Bless, Dries Van Noten, Bernhard Willhelm, Naomi Filmer, Sonia Rykiel, Chloe, Elsa Schiaparelli, Massaro, as well as Versace, Maison Martin Margiela and Comme des Garçons for H&M.

From 25 September 2015 until 7 February 2016. Liljevalchs. Djurgårdsvägen 60. Stockholm.
