When I was in Paris for Fashion Week back in March, I remember the excitement following YSL’s surprisingly punk-y and grunge-y show. Our Fashion Office declared that punk was back, and here to stay. When I returned to Milan the following week to see Prada and Miu Miu’s runway shoe collections, I saw punk influences again: masculine lug-soles, Doc Marten-inspired boots and booties, and exposed zippers. When the Met Gala was punk themed, I knew it was here to stay. The punk-inspired costumes and makeup were especially fun: SJP’s mohawk was one of my favorites, and I actually loved Kim K’s floral dress (haters gonna hate, but I love her).
This morning I met Jess and Sonya at The Met to check out the Costume Institute’s PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibit which is filled with original punk outfits from the 1970s all the way up to recent designer Ready To Wear. Extremely interesting to see how designers have been inspired and influenced by the punk culture back in the day.
Highly recommend, although don’t expect me to be dressing punk anytime soon ; )
