Puck & Hans

The Amsterdam Museum has brought a retrospective exhibition about an iconic dutch fashion duo Puck & Hans. 

They were widely know in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s for their striking creations.

Their clothing items were characterised by a mix of exclusive materials, quality and playfulness.

They also organized fashion shows at typical Amsterdan locations, like Artis Zoo.

The Museum had used some unusual locations for the exhibit as well,  here in the governors room.

To get all the items together they had  made a call to private owners to borrow their clothes for the exhibition. The respons was enormous, hundreds of items were delivered, people who had clothes of them never had thrown it away, they had always kept it like this bridal dress too.

Here a picture of the couple Puck and Hans in front of their shop.
