"A Thin Wall of Air: Charles James"

This exhibit explores the work of American couturier Charles James (1906-78) in relation to some of his most committed patrons and clients, John and Dominique de Menil. A conversation between wardrobe and interior, this exhibition presents a selection of garments and furniture. It includes evening gowns and daywear such as suits and coats, from Dominique de Menil's personal collection. The clothing is complemented by furniture James designed for the de Menils and set among references to the Menil House interior, such as drapery and wall colors, which he also designed.
