The ‘Style’ gallery in Exhibitionism

November 30, 2016

The 'Style' gallery in Exhibitionism is a firm fan favourite and it's easy to see why as the curators have unearthed some truly unique creations from collectors' vaults and the band members' closets. Many of these period Stones outfits have not been seen in public for decades.

The gallery is split into four distinct eras. First comes the period when the band lived on the King’s Road during the 1960s, then the glam era spanning from 1969 to 1989. After the glam period comes a look at the band’s love of high-end fashion and finally the room showcases the eight different outfits Jagger has worn to perform “Sympathy for the Devil,” along with a video screen showing the various performances.

Some of the designers and fashion houses featured in the gallery include Alexander McQueen, Prada, Dior, Ossie Clark and L’Wren Scott to name a few.

Some of the Micks' most recognizable outfits are on show including the black and red Lucifer cape worn at Altamont, a recreation of the white voile Michael Fish dress Mick wore to the 1969 Hyde Park gig as well as his signature 70s look -  the skintight Ossie Clark velvet jumpsuits. 'These kinds of jumpsuits, they were really easy, you didn’t have to make any decisions... “You were just like, ‘Is it going to be this color or this color,’ then put a scarf over it and you’re ready. They were very comfortable to wear. They were, like, sexy, and you could move in them.”
