In the true essence of two birds one stone, fashion and art join forces for the “Mad About The Boy” exhibition, showcasing in London’s Fashion Space Gallery. Curated by SHOWstudio’s own Lou Stoppard, the show explores fashion’s obsessive nature with male youth drawing focus on the ideas of the teenage boy – in a varied mix of collections and images.
Split into sections that include hangouts, rebellion, gender fluidity, sexual exploration, street culture, education, revelry, and the line between boy and man – the exhibition touches on a common link between these subjects.
Examining a time that offers opportunity and spontaneity with a sense of freedom, designers from all of fashions facets come together to celebrate the boy.
The exhibition includes works by J.W. Anderson, Larry Clark, Jason Evans, Kim Jones, Meadham Kirchhoff, Nick Knight, Tyrone Lebon, Nasir Mazhar, Martine Rose, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Christopher Shannon, Raf Simons and more.
“Mad About the Boy” opened its doors on January 8 and will run through April.
