Punk is back!

"Punk: Chaos to Couture”Is the exhibition event that inaugurated last May 6, 2013 at the MET, the one found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art di New York.

The exhibition is organized by Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute, and, as is clear, will be dedicated to Punk and its consequences in the world of fashion. Two "Cs" that meet and clash, "chaos" and "couture", a culture of the unconventional that involves and upsets the world of luxury and the superficial par excellence, Fashion.

The dedicated gallery inside the Met is divided into 7 areas, the design of which was curated by photographer Nick Knight, Sam Gainsbury and Gideon Ponte. The inauguration Gala was sponsored by none other than Anna Wintour, director of Vogue America, and Riccardo Tisci, creative director of Givenchy.

Upon entry, visitors are immediately greeted by the reproduction of a famous bathroom set in a wall, that of the CBGB club. And, immediately after, another reproduction, the London boutique "Let it Rock" which was inaugurated in 1971 by the wonderful Vivienne Westwood. Among the other curiosities of the exhibition there is a mannequin wearing clothes Vivienne Westwood who makes a blatant gesture to the public.

Just to name a few, visitors will be able to see creations by Chanel, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Moschino, Alexander McQueen and many others.

The exhibition will remain in New York only until August 14th.

The Met is open at the following times: Tuesday to Thursday from 9.30 to 17.30, Friday and Saturday from 9.30 to 21.00 and Sunday from 9.30 to 17.30 (closed on Mondays).
