“Snoopy and Belle in Fashion” exhibition opens during New York Fashion Week

Snoopy and his sister Belle, the celebrated Charles Schulz’s characters, take over New York Fashion Week with an exhibition premiering at the New Museum’s Sky Room on Sept. 8, featuring custom designs by Isabel Marant, Rodarte, Dries Van Noten, Calvin Klein Collection, Opening Ceremony, Emanuel Ungaro, Dsquared2, J. Mendel, Betsey Johnson and Diane von Furstenberg. The exhibition is titled “Snoopy and Belle in Fashion” and celebrates the 30th anniversary of the original “Snoopy in Fashion” initiative that back in 1984 gathered designers like Gianni Versace, Thierry Mugler, Jean Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Missoni, Oscar de la Renta, as well as repeaters Betsey Johnson and Diane von Furstenberg, all of whom dressed Snoopy and Belle in the latest fashion of that time.

“Snoopy and Belle in Fashion” also coincides with the “Peanuts” comic strip’s 65th anniversary, and raises the anticipation for the first ever “Peanuts” motion picture, which is going to be released next year in 100 countries and 40 languages. The exhibition, which seeks to introduce the famous cartoon characters to a new generation, will stay on view at the New Museum only for two days, until Sept. 10, and it will then travel to Paris, Moscow and Milan. We must admit that Snoopy and Belle look pretty fabulous in their new clothes, from the minimal Calvin Klein outfits to Diane von Furstenberg’s wrap dress, and we imagine that they must be quite happy for having finally renewed their wardrobe, even if they had to wait 30 years for it!
