Exhibition Lingerie Française in Miami

Sagamore Hotel, Miami Beach

Lingerie Française - The Exhibition

A 100-Year Retrospective of French Lingerie

Continuing its world tour, the French Lingerie exhibition will be presented at the famous Sagamore Hotel during the Art Basel Fair in Miami from November 29 to December 6 2016.

Free and open to all, the exhibition showcases the expertise and creativity of French lingerie which, for over a century and a half, has been worn by millions of women worldwide.

A dive into the collections of eleven of the most prestigious French brands - AUBADE, BARBARA, CHANTELLE, EMPREINTE, IMPLICITE, LISE CHARMEL, LOU, LOUISA BRACQ, MAISON LEJABY, PASSIONATA and SIMONE PÉRÈLE – has helped create this exhibition. With both elegance and lightness, it tells the story of an exceptional métier in a space devoted to contemporary art. 

The heart of this historic exhibition takes place in the Game Room of the Sagamore Hotel: from the first corsets of the 1880’s to custom-made creations of the 1930’s; from lingerie of the 1950’s that was the first to use nylon to the widespread use of Lycra in the 1980’s – this epic era of forms and fabrics is presented here. The presentation concludes with contemporary and future creations, and includes the research of Salima Abes, a recent graduate from the university ESMOD Paris who was recognized by Lingerie Française with an invitation to Miami.
