Ribbon Installation by Ryuji Nakamura for Costume National

Japanese architect Ryuji Nakamura has created a beautiful and very clever temporary exhibition celebrating the 25th anniversary of fashion brand Costume National in Tokyo.

Made from more than 4000 m of white ribbon, Nakamura made a display that gradually reveals the selected 25 outfits as one walks past.

“Because the ribbon width is slightly greater than the interval width, when you look at the installation from an angle, ribbons block the overall view. Clothes are visisble through the ribbon veil only when you stand directly in front of them.

As you walk past the ribbon veil, one outfit disappears as the next appears, allowing you to experience a series of sets, one by one.”
