LACE IS MORE! Five centuries of cultural history undressed

The exhibition is an experience that takes the visitor through five centuries of lace and art history, with incredible masterpieces from past and present.

The luxurious LACE IS MORE! exhibition introduces the visitor to five centuries of cultural history. It spotlights lace clothing  and accessories, presenting them  as veritable status symbols, which were often passed  on from mother to daughter or from father to son. It demonstrates how lace evolved from its function  as a decorative element of underclothing to a more prominent role as a part of outerwear and back again. And it reveals the pioneering part  the Van de Velde family business has played in this evolution. Numerous contemporary artists and designers have allowed lace to inspire  their creations, in both the fields of high fashion and art.
