    SUMMER AGENDA
    EXHIBITION IN NEW YORK

    Punk: Chaos to Couture, organized by The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, examines punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the 1970s through its continuing influence today. The exhibition is on view until August 14th at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

    In his introduction to the exhibition the curator Andrew Bolton emphasizes the similarities between Couture and Punk: “I think what's interesting about the relationship between punk and high fashion or couture is the fact that both really rely on hand-crafted skills for the aesthetic. So in a way, punk clothing is like haute couture - usually only one person in the world would be wearing a jacket that was self-customized by the individual. Even though the aesthetic is often widely different between haute couture and punk, the ethos behind it can be very similar.” He concludes: “Once you walk through the exhibition, hopefully you'll realize how punk has had such an explosive effect, both on the music styles and fashion today, but also as an approach to culture in general.”

    The poster of the exhibition features a jacket designed by Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection.
