"The Impossible Wardrobe" is a 40 minute performance piece conceived by Olivier Saillard,director of the Galliera Museum in Paris in witch Tilda Swinton present 57 pieces from the museum collection. Dresses,coats, accessories, she carry them at arm's lenght but she inhabit them so intensely, that more then a today model could take a lesson on how to present a piece of clothing on the runway.

All stills photos taken during the projection of "The Future will last a very long time" a film by Katerina Jebb

Wearing nude Sonia Rykiel pumps, dressed in a lab coat, beauty, grace and elegance, you could not dream of a better mannequin to walk this strange Fashion show.
The pieces are waiting in their white bags, ready for a second chance to come back to life.
Unfortunately taking pictures during the performance was forbidden,you have to take my word  when I say that was the most memorable show in fashion shows history.
In attendance that evening, Alber Elbaz, Marc Audibet and Adeline Andre, all under the spell of Miss Swinton.

A bientôt,
Pierre Candra
