Musée de la Mode: 300 outfits - and still nothing to wear

This is your last chance to see L'Homme Paré, an exhibit that's been hosted at Musée de la Mode et du Textile since October. The collection includes 300 period costumes ranging from the 17th century to modern times. It highlights the changes and commonalities in men's fashions through the years. I don't think we ought to resort to a "what's hot" and "what's not" list, like they do on television during award shows, but you'll be amazed by the expansive collection.

If you'd like a preview, visit this multimedia presentation that offers a sneak peek at L'Homme Paré. If you'd prefer, a PDF brochure can give you all of the Musée's "information practique."
