Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between

The Arrival
Rei Kawakubo's exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art includes categories like Then/Now, Model/Multiple, and Self/Other.

According to Andrew Bolton, Rei Kawakubo loves a puzzle. In an interview, she once compared her work to Zen koans—the unsolvable riddles Buddhist teachers present to their students. “You’re not meant to decipher koans,” Bolton explains. “The idea is that you finally realize they’re nonsensical and you realize the limitations of your intellect. Then you free your mind, and by freeing your mind, you get to another point.” He pauses. “It’s amazing. And that’s basically what Rei’s work is about, Zen koans.”

Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion

Masterworks is the new show that just opened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
in the Costume Institute.

Not sure what to expect from this exhibit? I was imagining dresses and unpacked boxes but this 
is a most amazing show.  Masterworks is beautifully curated with garments from the 1700's to current day.

Bill Cunningham

Whenever I saw Bill Cunningham in the crowd I knew I was in the right spot. He seemed to have an internal magnet and barometer for celebrities, socialites and the avant garde. I'm going to miss his blue coat, his smile and his great eye for fashion.

Here are some of my shots of Bill before the show started.
