MoMu hits the streets with decorated utility boxes

Never seen before objects from the MoMu collection are now to be discovered in the streets of Antwerp. In close collaboration with the District of Antwerp, MoMu has redesigned 16 utility boxes in 12 locations!

The utility boxes feature the finest contemporary work from our collection which, despite the current renovation work, continues to expand with clothes and accessories of great relevance to future generations. As the world's largest collection of Belgian fashion, our archive continues to grow through purchases, but also donations and long-term loans from private individuals, designers and fashion brands.

The renovated utility boxes in Nationalestraat offer a glimpse of this extensive and varied collection, which is an infinite source of inspiration to all fashion lovers. The entire city will now discover an unexpected selection from the unique collection managed by MoMu, comprising approximately 33,000 objects and covering every layer of fashion and textile history.

Besides a mash-up of different iconic silhouettes from the collection, passers-by will also have the chance to admire work by photographer Ronald Stoops and make-up artist Inge Grognard. Their pioneering work over the last decades for accomplished Belgian names, like Martin Margiela, Dries Van Noten, Dirk Van Saene and Walter Van Beirendonck are also featured at each location.
