Exhibit: PUNK: Chaos to Couture
High fashion has a variety of influences, and this month it's all about punk. As described by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, chaos moves to couture - which is why their costume exhibition this spring (May 9th - August 14th) focuses on punk fashion.
The punk movement started in the 70's and has been gracing hearts, minds, screens and ears for more than four decades. And just like fashion draws influences from punk, punk draws influences from art, giving it an incredible narrative that's stood the test of time. We curated our favorite picks from the exhibit. After all, spring is here and temperatures are hitting the high 70's, we're feeling a little rebellious....
