Hot Looks of the Day

the 20s Oskar Schlemmer hot looks of the day Germany fashion Bauhaus Art The ballet costumes of Bauhaus painter, sculptor, and choreographer Oskar Schlemmer, most notably these from his “Triadisches Ballett,” in which the actors were transfigured from normal to geometrical shapes. According to the Roland Collection: “The central theme of his work was the relation between humankind and space, and the mediator between these two was to be the dancer, stripped of his individual identity by the use of costumes and masks, often rendering them as part of the scenery.” Fabulous and innovative and groundbreaking, yes, but it’s all very Disco 2000-looking to me. And it’s actually not so far-fetched to think the clubkids were artistically descended from this. I remember seeing the costume from the second row, left, at the Bauhaus Museum in Berlin, and being thunderstruck when I realized it was probably what Leigh Bowery was referencing in this look. He was an art student, after all, and often referenced artists like Dali and Duchamp.
