Timeless - A photography exhibition dedicated to vintage

  • Vanda Lengyel

At Szputnyik Shop we had planned to organise an exhibition where the beauty of vintage played the central role. With the Slow Movement in its focus Budapest Design Week 2012 was about economic, social and cultural sustainability. The connection was a given since vintage clothing with its long-lasting materials, and high-quality finish is a manifestation of the movement. The challenge was how to visualise the timeless aspect of vintage clothes and accessories the most expressive way. We organised a photography exhibition showcasing a collection of artwork by Zsófia Heisler and Marcell Krulik. The aim was to show how these vintage pieces live on today and also capture the models stepping out from the replicated past to the moment of now. It stressed the hidden value, the uniqueness and the quality of vintage clothing.
