The Body Invented in Sala Azca

Collectors Collective presents a special exhibition on fashion and the feminine silhouette that addresses the main lines that have reigned in the field of fashion from the beginning of the 20th century to the present, contextualizing the aesthetic canons that have prevailed throughout this time period, giving them a new vision, and discussing the relationship between body and fashion.

Far from colors, fabrics, ornaments or textures, it is really the silhouette that is responsible for creating the true spirit of time. It is, in short, the silhouette that has marked the aesthetic canon of each era. Thus, over the past one hundred years, four have been the most relevant silhouettes in fashion. Although the prevalence is not exclusive, the prominence of one of them is what defines each era.

In this way, in the Sala Azca we can see the four kinds of silhouettes: the tubular silhouette, the triangular silhouette, the globular silhouette and the anatomical silhouette.

To end the exhibition, “The Invented Body” proposes a reflection on the tyranny of the visible and the naked body, a movement that has been consolidating in recent years and that, today, could be considered a trend.
