Punk Rock might not be the most obvious choice of subject matter for the Met’s Costume Institute, but when you look at the enduring influence the genre and its fashion offshoots have had on the industry, it is easy to see why it was chosen. Think of all the editorials that reference the insouciant energy of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen, or the endless stream of collections set to the sounds of The Clash. Sartorially speaking, would we have gotten to Rodarte’s deconstructed dresses, or Givenchy’s studded jackets without pioneers like Vivienne Westwood or Rei Kawakubo? Punk and fashion aren’t such strange bedfellows and the Met’s latest exhibit explores their intersection. This morning’s preview of the upcoming gala event brought out the likes of Anna Wintour (a true punk if there ever was one) and Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci – take a look at the goings on and catch a first glimpse of the Met’s take on punk’s ethos.

    Ok. I’m not trying to sound like a hater, because I’m not!! But this exhibit sounds and looks extremely similar to the Anglomania exhibit they had a few years ago!
