Google Arts & Culture: We Wear Culture
Fans of fashion and fashion history will want to check out this new feature from Google Arts & Culture on the history of clothing, shoes, accessories, and other wearables from around the world. Created in collaboration with 180 cultural institutions from 40 countries, We Wear Culture features short documentaries, high resolution images, 360-degree videos, and more. In total, there are no fewer than 30,000 items and 450 exhibits. One of these exhibits, Is Fashion Art?, presents shoes designed by Salvatore Ferragamo alongside other designers who either collaborated with or were influenced by artists of other mediums. Meanwhile, the Making Of series of exhibits explores the backstories of various items of clothing, including the kimono and the sari. Another series, The Icons, explores individuals who have influenced fashion, including Coco Chanel and Oscar de la Renta. Thanks to the breadth of materials available here, We Wear Culture will broadly appeal to individuals interested in different aspects of the history of fashion, art, and culture.
