"Fashion and sport, from one catwalk to the other".

This exhibition explores the links between the worlds of sport and fashion, from antiquity to the present day.

  • As Paris prepares for the arrival of the 2024 Olympic Games, MAD Paris presents a cheerful and colorful exhibition on the world of sport
  • 450 pieces, clothing and accessories, as well as photographic documents, newspaper clippings, paintings, sculptures and videos, accompany us in the discovery of a body dressed for effort and performance.
  • We discover the links between two seemingly distant worlds
  • That's how Patou, Chanel and Schiaparelli took an interest in sports in the 1920s, enriching their couture collections with sportswear for the first time.
  • To this day, the big names in fashion continue to work closely with the most famous sports brands
  • This body dressed to win also speaks of changes in society, emancipation, belonging and even social classes.
  • The catwalks are full of stories and anecdotes: from the Lacoste crocodile to the Tour de France yellow jerseythey've become iconic!
  • Scandals are not forgotten with the fuchsia belted black jumpsuit from Serena Williams who shocked so many on the courts of French Open in 2018
  • But also victories with the famous Zidane jersey worn for the world cup
  • Mythical garments chosen to celebrate the Olympic Games, they show us the extent to which sport has influenced everyday fashion on the streets: jogging, sneakersclothing tech.
