My snapshots and my “coups de Coeur” of the day resume to
A Valentine’s cake I will not make because I don’t have a date, but instead, I might go out and have a drink with my friends,
Two amazing Diesel bags for Men I could wear to college,
Some very practical Phillip Lim bags too,
And finally this year’s theme of the Met’s SS13 Costume Institute exhibition,“Punk: Chaos to Couture”, that I love because I recently bought a Punk shirt that I am very determined to pull off as soon as the sun shines bright.
“The exhibition, on view from May 9 through August 11, 2013 (preceded on May 6 by The Costume Institute Benefit), will examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the 1970s through its continuing influence today. […] “Since its origins, punk has had an incendiary influence on fashion,” said Andrew Bolton, Curator in The Costume Institute. “Although punk’s democracy stands in opposition to fashion’s autocracy, designers continue to appropriate punk’s aesthetic vocabulary to capture its youthful rebelliousness and aggressive forcefulness.” […]The exhibition, in the Museum’s second-floor Cantor galleries, will feature approximately 100 designs for men and women. Original punk garments from the mid-1970s will be juxtaposed with recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear have borrowed punk’s visual symbols, with paillettes being replaced with safety pins, feathers with razor blades, and bugle beads with studs. Focusing on the relationship between the punk concept of 'do-it-yourself' and the couture concept of 'made-to-measure,' the exhibition will be organized around the materials, techniques, and embellishments associated with the anti-establishment style. Presented as an immersive multimedia, multisensory experience, the clothes will be animated with period music videos and soundscaping audio techniques.” (Punk Fashion Will be Focus of Spring 2013 Costume Institute Exhibition at Metropolitan Museum, February 11, 2013)
I really like the shirt from the left picture, it’s a D.I.Y to do really.
