Missoni Exhibition

We were in London for a few days over last weekend, and on Saturday I went to the Missoni Art Colour exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum in Bermondsey.  (If you haven't seen it, you've missed it - it finished on Sunday.)

In the main space, there was a bank of mannequins (over 40, I reckon) wearing Missoni outfits - a wonderfully varied array.  

Elsewhere, there were art works that had inspired the Missonis, their own sketches for fabric designs, and swatches of fabric.

I especially liked the very complex multicolour knit fabrics.

    Some of the mannequins were wearing similar fabrics, too.

A very satisfying small exhibition.  And Bermondsey is interesting - most of the buildings in the street are I think 19th century, when it was a working class area. The buildings have mostly been renovated in recent years, and now The Shard at London Bridge towers over them.
