Russian Folk Costume

From March 18 to August 30th, 2009

HS396-0_1 In partnership with the Ethnographical Museum of Russia, the Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent is presenting an exhibition of 19th and 20th century popular Russian dress.

Worn on the occasion of seasonal festivities or weddings, these Russian costumes are marvellous examples of popular tradition, emphasized by the subtle play of superimpositions and shades of colour.

A series of photographs from the Shabelskaya collection (late 19th and early 20th century) will also be on show. These photographs are an excellent illustration of the wealth of these costumes and their presentation.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays, 11h to 18h.

3 rue Léonce Reynaud
75116 Paris

Photo features the exhibition's catalogue, Popular russian dress, Connaissance des arts, 9 euros.
