If you're in NYC this spring, check out the Met's Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. This exhibit explores striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two iconic Italian designers from different eras. It's Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's "Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s.
Signature objects by both designers will be arranged in seven themed galleries: "Waist Up/Waist Down," "Ugly Chic," "Hard Chic," "Naïf Chic," "The Classical Body," "The Exotic Body," and "The Surreal Body."
On View May 10–August 19, 2012!
