Maestro Philip Tracy

Exhibition November 20, 2020 − March 21, 2021
Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art is holding an exhibition on the 10th anniversary of the gallery "".

The exposition will include the hits of the Hats in the 21st Century exhibition, the master's creations that have never been in Russia before, as well as fashionable novelties from the designer.
Knight of the Order of the British Empire Philip Tracy is a five-time designer of the year (accessories) at The Fashion Awards and a dozen other high awards. Today his works are no longer only exquisite wardrobe items, but also museum values. Tracy's hat exhibitions adorn the world's most famous galleries. For the first time, the maestro exhibited a collection of his masterpieces in the famous New York Metropolitan Museum. At the same time, he continues to collaborate with leading fashion houses: Armani, Ralph Lauren and Givenchy.

The secret of the master's success is his boundless imagination and courage in the embodiment of ideas. A swan, a horse's head, a lobster, a telephone, a hand, an ashtray - all this and much more can be a source of inspiration for Philip Tracy! The fashion designer experiments with colors and shapes, constantly expanding the boundaries in the choice of materials. He uses feathers, artificial and live plants, plastic, metal, fur, textiles and even electrical appliances. In 2015, the Erarta Museum already held a retrospective exhibition of the maestro, reflecting his 25-year career. Then the audience fell in love with the project - it had a record attendance for its time and received a huge number of positive reviews. The feelings turned out to be mutual: Philip Tracy was imbued with both St. Petersburg and the museum, so the decision to give St. Petersburg residents an exhibition of fantastic hats for the tenth anniversary of Erarta came naturally.
