Perfume celebrate vinyl and Blu-ray release with an official gallery exhibition in London, 6-7 August
Over the course of their 15-year career, Japan’s chart-topping electro-pop trio Perfume have repeatedly redefined the interplay between music, fashion, technology and design.
In August, a special gallery exhibition will bring Perfume’s unique design to London, offering fans and newcomers a rare opportunity to see outfits worn by a-chan, KASHIYUKA and NOCCHi on stage and in music videos – along with other memorabilia and artefacts from throughout their career.
“Perfume: A Gallery Experience – Supported by Rhizomatiks” will gather items such as the light-up LED dresses from the video to smash-hit single Spring of Life; the dresses, engineered by globally renowned multimedia design group Rhizomatiks, are just one example of how Perfume have embraced cutting-edge tech into their bold fashion.
Other exhibits on display will include high-heel shoes that were specially designed for Perfume’s intricate stage performances, promo posters from all through their career, and items created just for this exhibition such as a photo spot and a special video message from the members of Perfume.
Until 18 July, fans are invited to vote on Perfume’s official Facebook page for their favourite outfit. The winning clothes will be displayed at the London exhibition, which will be held at the Old Truman Brewery Shop 7 in Shoreditch, London, on 6 and 7 August.
The exhibition coincides with the European vinyl release of Perfume’s latest album “Cosmic Explorer”, which will be available for purchase at the venue, along with the highly anticipated Blu-ray release of feature-length documentary “WE ARE Perfume -WORLD TOUR 3rd DOCUMENT” and other Perfume CDs and DVDs.
Tickets are priced £5 and are available in advance from Eventbrite or on the door. Advance ticket holders will receive an exclusive free collectors’ postcard upon entry.
