I don’t post about many non U.S. exhibitions, but when I do they are normally British. But today the Netherlands is in for a treat.
Until March 10, Centraal Museum Utrecht presents Blue Jeans, an exhibition looking at a garment found around the world. If one seeks an unrivaled example of world fashion, it is blue jeans.
The show is arranged thematically — its origins during the 17th century as work wear, 20th century high fashion, uniformity, individuality, and modern styles. The exhibition looks at the components of a pair of jeans and both the pollution blue jean production causes and the sustainable efforts some companies have made.
Address: Centraal Museum, Nicolaaskerkhof 10, 33512 XC Utrecht, Netherlands
Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 11-5
Admission: adults €13, seniors €11, youths 13-17 € 7
