The MET Costume Institute Gala 2017: “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between”

0

The 2017 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala was held tonight at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

The theme of this year’s exhibition is dedicated to 74-year-old Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo. As one of fashion’s most revered creative visionaries, she founded the avant garde label Comme des Garçons in 1969, and was part of a cohort of radical Japanese designers to debut in Paris in the early 1980s.

Kawakubo has striven to create new aesthetics during her career, defying norms about what clothing and the body should look like.

“Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between” will use 150 examples of Kawakubo’s work to explore how the designer has managed to straddle and subvert established dualities (then/now, self/other, clothes/not clothes etc.).

It is also important to mention that this is the first time the Met has dedicated a show to a living designer since 1983’s tribute to Yves Saint Laurent.
