Surreal Things in London, V&A;


It's about time for a trip to London. not a working visit or a trip to another wedding I'd like to take some toime off just to see the new expo at the V&A;, Surreal things. I've linked here to a good review in the IHT by Suzy Menkes. There are some showstoppers a la the Lobster Telephone (Téléphone Homard) by Salvador Dali (1936) and some other treats in store.....

"The torn-illusion dress Schiap designed with Dalí (inspired by his 1936 painting) is one of many exceptional pieces, including sexually charged furry accessories and a dress tracing the body's skeleton. Today's fashionistas sighed and died over the recreation of Schiap's shop, her daring perfume bottles (one modeled on Mae West's pneumatic body) and over Dalí's jewelry, including the ruby "lips" brooch with pearl teeth."
