Just a site for some crazy little things, but we do like.
There were lots of things going on since last year The Met’s Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. This exhibition is established to become huge moment for the fashion industry in term of everythings This year, we’ve known for quite a while that the topic will be about “PUNK” but what we are waiting is what it is all about and who are going to be related to.
“PUNK AND CIRCUMSTANCE: Just what exactly defines the punk era? Is it an attitude of anarchy, a rebellious aesthetic movement rooted in do-it-yourself, or both? The book accompanying “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” the much-anticipated spring exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute May 9 to August 14, explores this visually as well as in the words of curator Andrew Bolton, and those of three punk originals: Richard Hell, John “Johnny Rotten” Lydon and Jon Savage, who each weigh in with separate essays that are at once enlightening and fascinating.” according to WWD

“Punk began with a feeling — of frustration and rage — and turned into an idea that could be acted upon. Employing deconstruction and self-starter empowerment — the DIY ethic — it liberated a generation to create its own culture.” Which, in turn, influenced the upper echelons of fashion, which the book effectively illustrates from abundant examples by John Galliano, Comme des Garçons and Junya Watanabe, to drawing direct comparisons between original punk looks and designer clothes. A furry knitted sweater from Prada’s fall 2007 collection, for instance, bears a resemblance to one worn by Nancy Spungen in 1977; homage or not, graffiti-esque splattered paint looks on Vivienne Westwood’s spring 2010 runway faintly echo The Clash’s attire in the mid-Seventies, and safety pins of London punks share an aesthetic with runway looks from Moschino to Balmain by Christophe Decarnin.
