17 July to 20 September 2015

The Capri Collection has turned 70!

For this special anniversary of this world-famous fashion item with the legendary slit, the Museum TIM invites visitors on an exciting journey through time, back to the beginning of the fashionable career start of the Capri pants. The exhibition bends the bow from the studio of the young fashion designer Sonja de Lennart in Munich of the postwar time up to the first tourists waves over the Brenner Pass on Italian beaches in the 1950s and on to Hollywood.

The museum visitors can tour the fashion house of the post-war period, in which they will encounter numerous prominent Capri pants wearers. Several pieces from the first collection of Sonja de Lennart testify to the fashionable ideal and women images, along with hopes and dreams of that time and impressively convey the spirit of an entire generation.

The TIM took over the exhibition from the birthplace “Levi Strauss Museum" in Buttenheim.
