Surrealism has influenced every aspect of the 20th century. In the world of fashion, new ideas that had absorbed its influence were realised thanks to creators who, anticipating the image of a new era, reflected the spirit of the age while producing innovative fashion that overlapped with the surrealists’ ideals. Conversely, the surrealists drew inspiration from clothing and things such as coats, dresses, hats, and gloves, which provided the stimulus for numerous artworks. Published in conjunction with the eponymous exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, this volume explores the expressive beauty that generated opportunities and sensations in the fashion world.
