“Our name is perhaps a little misleading,” says museum director Malin Grundberg. “Yes, there’s lots of armour on display, but we also have old carriages and amazing clothes and accessories from parties, weddings and funerals.”
This autumn sees the museum exhibit new creations alongside the historic artefacts for the first time ever. Studying portraits of the respected Florentine Medici family, Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave has created Renaissance clothes entirely out of paper, recreating the fashion of a time otherwise not very well preserved.
