FRANCE – SOUTH KOREA YEAR
This year, 2015-2016, is a year of collaboration between South Korea and France (cultural, political,…) with a lot of events dispatch during the year. I was really happy to have the opportunity to discover more about S.Korea but……..I knew I will be abroad the whole year, so sad. As soon as I went back to France for holidays I took the opportunity to see the exposition of Korean clothing style in the Art décoratif Museum (http://www.lesartsdecoratifs.fr/en/exhibitions/current-events-1322/musee-des-arts-decoratifs/korea-now-design-craft-fashion-and-graphic-design-in-korea/) at the Louvre in Paris. It was really beautiful and I learnt more about the history and the relationship of Korean people with clothes and colors meanings.
The exposition was organised by colors (Red, Yellow, Black, Blue and White) and the meaning in the Korean culture. The first floor was dedicated to the red, yellow and black color and the second floor was dedicated to the blue and white color. It’s the first exposition of three around S.Korea: fashion, design and craft.
Red: High, South, Passion, Fire, Summer, Non-married woman
Yellow: Center, Rich, Ground
Black: Under, Wisdom, Winter
Blue: Left, Integrity, East, Tree, Spring
White: Right, Detachment, Metal, Autumn
Go see it!
