Gijs + Emmy=Spectacle
The Stedelijk Museum presents a survey exhibition of fashion and jewellery created by renowned husband and wife design team Gijs Bakker and Emmy van Leersum between 1967 and 1972. ‘The Gijs+Emmy Spectacle’ runs from 22 February to 24 August 2014.
Revolutionary Dutch design
As the sixties drew to a close, Bakker and Van Leersum took the world of design by storm with their revolutionary avant-garde jewellery and clothing. The duo hit the big time with a sensational show at the Stedelijk in 1967 and a reconstruction of this, featuring a catwalk and seven outfits, forms the core of the exhibition.
