Abstract:

Fashion and the Surrealist movement have had numerous affinities from the outset of the latter. "Beauty will be convulsive or will not be at all," André Breton declared in the thirties, a maxim that could serve as a motto for the world of haute couture. And fashion, the stuff of its creators' dreams, often is surreal in the true sense of the word: a shoe turned into a woman's hat, a glove with claw-like gold fingernails, a lobster dress... The Surrealists picked bourgeois fashion apart at the seams and gave it a taste for scandale. Today, the genius of Salvador Dali, Max Ernst and René Magritte continues to influence great coutiers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, John Galliano and Serge Lutens.
