Juicy Couture Tracksuit To Appear In Museum Exhibit
The infamous tracksuit achieved a very high honour by the inclusion in one of the UK's biggest museums.
We all remember the days of the early to mid 2000s, when every female celebrity was seen exiting a Starbucks with an iced coffee in hand, sporting the once ubiquitous Juicy Couture velour tracksuit. The outfit achieved a somewhat iconic status and was worn by everyone from Paris Hilton to Britney Spears.
Well now the garment has been included in an exhibit at the prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum in London, along with undergarments from the First World War, and a dress worn by supermodel Kate Moss.
Business Insider reports : 'The exhibit, called "Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear," will run in London's Victoria and Albert Museum from April 16, 2016, through March 12, 2017.’
The criteria for inclusion in a V&A exhibit are very rigorous, with items required to have "outstanding aesthetic or technical quality”.(The Telegraph)
The exhibition promises to 'tell the story of underwear design from the 18th century to the present day, considering the practical and personal, sensory and fashionable and exploring underwear’s roles of protecting and enhancing the body.'(Victoria& Albert Museum)
We predict that Michael Kors bags will feature in a similar exhibition in years to come.
