On Fifth Avenue: from Chaos to Couture
Celebrating the Costume Institute
Every spring our visual team celebrates the Met’s Costume Institue exhibitions, creating vignettes honoring that which is carefully curated 20 blocks north of us. This year is no exception.
Called Punk: Chaos to Couture, the Met’s spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition examines punk’s impact on high fashion, including looks carried at Bergdorf Goodman. Echoing this idea, our windows team executed an homage to punk’s influence by blending runway looks from yesterday and today (including Gareth Pugh, Libertine, Balmain and Acne Studios) . Featuring runway looks over a decade old, expect to see archival pieces seamlessly blended in with pieces currently available inside.
