our marketing team played hooky last monday to enjoy a private tour of the met costume institute’s latest exhibition—a treat from our friends over at vogue. named “impossible conversations,” the show is a riveting romp through the worlds of two legendary fashion luminaries who always inspire us—elsa schiapelli and miucca prada. we explored room after room of outré shoes and clothes, oggled schiapelli’s iconic trompe l’oeil designs and surrealist frocks (salvador dali was one of her frequent collaborators!), and headed home full of admiration and awe.
we don’t want to give away too many more surprises behind this chic show (hint: baz luhrmann directed the video), but we highly recommend checking out the exhibit before it departs on august 19th. enjoy!
