All new Traveling Exhibit “Snoopy and Belle in Fashion Presented by MetLife” Debuts at the New Museum Sky Room
The much-anticipated new exhibition entitled “Snoopy and Belle in Fashion presented by MetLife” opens today at the New Museum’s Sky Room in New York City. Bringing together Snoopy and his sister Belle with the world’s foremost design talent and visionaries, the exhibition features all new one-of-a-kind creations for the on-trend vinyl Snoopy and Belle dolls. After New York, the exhibit will travel to the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and other locations in Milan, Tokyo, and more over the next two years.
The international fashion leaders designing for Snoopy and Belle include: Anna Sui, Betsey Johnson, Bibhu Mohapatra, Calvin Klein Collection, Christian Siriano, Costello Tagliapietra, DKNY, Diane Von Furstenberg, Dsquared2, Dries Van Noten, Emanuel Ungaro, Isaac Mizrahi, Isabel Marant, J.Mendel, Kenneth Cole, Lisa Perry, MAC Cosmetics, Opening Ceremony, PhilipTreacy, Rodarte, Royal Asscher, Swarovski, Tracy Reese, VPL by Victoria Bartlett, and Zac Posen.
“Snoopy and Belle In Fashion presented by MetLife” makes its premiere appearance as Peanuts prepares to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the beloved Charles Schulz comic strip in 2015, along with the brand’s first all new CGI 3D feature film from Twentieth Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, the 50th anniversary of Peanuts on television with A Charlie Brown Christmas airing on ABC, and the 30th anniversary of the inaugural “Snoopy in Fashion” event of the 1980s.
The all new exhibit will include Snoopy and Belle looks from the new roster of leading designers, as well as iconic looks from the original exhibition, which included looks from Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, Oscar De La Renta, Giorgio Armani, L.L. Bean, and many more. The show went on to exhibit at The Louvre, The L.A. County Museum, and throughout Europe and Asia, and inspired both paperback and hard cover art books.
In gratitude for the designers’ participation in the event, Peanuts will make a donation to their charity of choice. Several designers, who are members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, who was instrumental in supporting the Snoopy and Belle in Fashion project, will support initiatives associated with that organization.
