Met Kawakubo: Art of the In-Between
I recently attended the press preview for the Met’s latest fashion exhibit, Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, Art of the In-Between, a retrospective on the Japanese designer. Various sections throughout the exhibit broke down the different categories that Kawakubo’s designs have explored. Some of the sections include Life/Loss, Elite Culture/Popular Culture and Order/Chaos amongst others. The exhibit, minimal and beautifully set, speaks deeply to both design and social topics.
See first-hand images from the exhibit below. When in NYC, stop by the Metropolitan Museum for yourself and check it out. It’s on view from May 4- September 4, 2017.
