The creativity in the Japanese culture is something that is unique and distinct, and nothing showcases that more than electro-pop trio Perfume. This chart topping Japanese group have mixed fashion, design, technology and music to new levels never seen before.
As a form of thank you to all their fans that have supported them in their 15 year career, Perfume has collaborated with world renowned multimedia design group Rhizomatiks to throw Perfume: A Gallery Experience at PURE SPACE in Manhattan, September 3rd to the 4th. This will showcase the different outfits created by Rhizomatiks for Perfume videos and live shows. Also, in display will be items such as promo posters and heel shoes. The promo posters showcase the course of their 15-year career, while the heel shoes were designed for Perfume live shows.
The exhibition coincides with the group’s stateside tour supporting their most recent release Cosmic Explorer which hit earlier this year via Universal Music International. The tour is set to kick off in LA on August 26 with a sold out show at The Wiltern before making stops in key markets across America before wrapping with two shows in New York on September 3rd & 4th at Hammerstein Ballroom. Vinyl release of Perfume’s latest album “Cosmic Explorer” will come out August 5th and 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.
