Over the course of their 15-year career, Japan’s chart-topping electro-pop trio Perfume have repeatedly redefined the interplay between music, fashion, technology and design. This special gallery exhibition will bring Perfume’s unique design to London, offering fans and newcomers a rare opportunity to see outfits worn by a-chan, KASHIYUKA and NOCCHi on stage and in music videos – along with other memorabilia and artefacts from throughout their career.
We have received a lot of questions regarding this event, so here is an FAQ:
Q. What will be shown at the exhibition?
A. We will bring several sets of dresses worn by the members of Perfume in music videos and on stage, along with other items of interest to Perfume fans new and old and an exclusive photo spot.
Exhibits include the light-up LED dresses from the video to smash-hit single Spring of Life, high-heel shoes that were specially designed for Perfume’s intricate stage performances, and promo posters from all through their career. One set of dresses has been decided by a fan poll on Perfume's official Facebook page (poll is now closed).
All exhibits will be shipped over specially from Japan, while the layout of the gallery and much of the design will be prepared specially by Rhizomatiks. We will announce some of the items on Perfume's official Facebook page over the coming weeks.
Q. How long will the exhibition take to look around?
A. This depends on how carefully you would like to examine the outfits and other items. To simply dash around the exhibits, please allow roughly 30 minutes. However, visitors can stay in the space for as long as they like, to look closely at the items and to enjoy the company of other Perfume and Rhizomatiks fans.
Q. Can I buy Perfume goods at the gallery?
A. The exhibition coincides with the European vinyl release of Perfume’s latest album “Cosmic Explorer”, which will be available for purchase at the venue, along with the highly anticipated Blu-ray release of feature-length documentary “WE ARE Perfume -WORLD TOUR 3rd DOCUMENT” and other Perfume CDs and DVDs.
Visitors will also have the rare opportunity to purchase Perfume merchandise from Japan that is not usually available to buy in the UK.
Q. Can I buy tickets at the door or do I need an advance ticket?
A. Tickets will be for sale at the door, subject to availability. To guarantee entry, we recommend buying a ticket in advance. As an added bonus, visitors with an advance ticket will receive a special Perfume collectors' postcard created exclusively for this exhibition.
