From February 20 through May 16 2016, six galleries of the Philips
Wing will be dedicated to fashion of the Dutch from 1625 to 1960. Starting with
garments worn by members of the Frisian branch of the house of Nassau in the
Golden Age, the exhibits will feature vibrantly coloured French silk gowns and
luxurious velvet gentlemen’s suits of the eighteenth century,
classically-inspired Empire dresses and bustles of the Fin de Siècle
culminating in twentieth-century French haute couture by Dior and Yves Saint Laurent.
