To celebrate the reopening of its fashion galleries, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs is organizing an exhibition that pays tribute to this legendary magazine founded in 1867 and which has crossed the decades to the present with a passion for fashion, avant-garde aesthetics and innovative daring.

The exhibition, which runs from 28 February to 4 January 2021, will showcase the highlights of Harper's Bazaar. Couture and ready-to wear fashion from the museum are shown alongside images from the magazine’s pages. There is also a focus on the people who contributed to the magazine’s legendary reputation, from renowned illustrators and photographers Man Ray, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and Peter Lindbergh to editors and chief editors Carmel Snow, Alexey Brodovitche and Diana Vreeland.

MAD - Musée des Arts Décoratifs

Situated in a wing of the Louvre, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs provides visitors with an insight into the decorative arts from medieval times to the present day. Visitors can discover a bedroom from the 15th century, admire the creations of numerous porcelain factories (Sèvres, Saint-Cloud, etc.), and observe the birth and development of art nouveau, with its curves and floral motifs. Works by contemporary designers and artists such as the Bouroullec brothers are presented towards the end of the exhibition visit. The rich collections from the departments of fashion and textiles, advertising and graphic design, conserved by the museum, are displayed only during temporary exhibitions. The nave, the superbly decorated central section of the museum, is used to host exhibition-events. Complete your visit with a trip to the bookstore and gift shop, 107Rivoli, where an exclusive selection of designer objects are on sale.
