upcoming exhibit

In May, Comme des Garçons will be the subject of “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s spring 2017 exhibition—only the second such show to honor a living designer, the other recipient being Yves Saint Laurent in 1983. Kawakubo is undeniably influential, a cult figure in the industry, but her designs are far from Saint Laurent’s easy trenches and sexy smokings.

In a rare interview, the designer discusses her work and the upcoming exhibition: here.

Emilio Ambasz

While many of the pioneers of green architecture could arguably be criticized as technocratic and dry, this has never applied to Emilio Ambasz. His concept of “green over gray” has been pushing the debate around sustainability forwards since the 1970s, but alongside this concept he has developed a critical approach to architectural meaning and form-making which competes with many of architecture’s more poetic practitioners. Ahead Vladimir Belogolovsky’s upcoming exhibition of Ambasz’s work, “Emilio Ambasz: Architecture Toward Nature,” which is on show at the Singapore’s Urban Redevelopment Center from February 6th – 28th, Belogolovsky shares his interview with the architect in ArchDaily’s “City of Ideas” column.

A Work of Art

“Miss Luthor, the curator for the upcoming exhibit at the National City museum of history is here for your 2 p.m. appointment,” Jess announces matter-of-factly, then she holds the door for a moment.

A statuesque brunette enters behind her, dressed sharply in business attire, long hair pulled back from sharp olive features. She could be look stern, but for now, a smile graces her features.

“Ms. Luthor, thank you for granting me some of your time.” She has an accent that is difficult to place. “I am Diana Prince, I’ve been working on gathering and judging the validity of the upcoming exhibit, but I am afraid we’ve run into a… small problem.”

“Dr. Windsor suggested that you have been a great friend to the museum in the past, so I am hoping to prevail upon your love of history to aid us in bringing this to your city.”


Designer Claire McCardell and the ballet flat

The checklist for upcoming MoMA exhibition Items: Is Fashion Modern? centers upon 111 items of fashion design, from high fashion to humble masterpieces. One of these items is the versatile and much-loved ballet flat. As part of our research into the shoe, we spoke with fashion historian Julie Eilber who was gracious enough to share her expertise, archive, and enthusiasm for the American designer Claire McCardell, who – along with legendary designer and Ukrainian émigrée Valentina Schlee – was one of the earliest fashion designers to see the potential of the ballet slipper as womenswear.

Spring’s blossoms are blooming in this vibrant glass mosaic design! Made in 1897 by Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company, this floral detail is part of a larger memorial panel in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church located in Troy, New York. We love how the petals and leaves were sensitively selected so that the striations in the glass highlight shadows and give the flowers a three-dimensional quality. To learn more about glass selection (and even try your hand at it!), visit our upcoming exhibition with The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass, “Tiffany’s Glass Mosaics,” opening May 20th at the Museum.
