On Exhibit….Yves Saint Laurent + Halston: Fashioning the 70s

2915yslhalstonWeb1

A great new exhibit opened on Friday at The Museum at FIT, juxtaposing, for the first time in a full exhibit, the work of YSL and Halston.

 

It’s an extremely timely exhibit, considering fashion’s current love affair with all things 70′s.

 

What makes this exhibit exciting to experience is how similar the work of these two designers actually is. It almost became a game I was playing with myself to guess which design was Halston, and which was YSL.

 

As I walked through other people were playing the same game-

 

“This one’s DEFINITELY Halston,” one friend would say to another.

 

The friend would stand by the descriptions off to the side and quip back, “…it’s YSL”.

 

“No!” Said the first.

 

It’s a beautiful exhibit, and a fun game to play.

..and then there are those who opt for something a little more neutral.

On nasty winters afternoons like we have today in New York City I dream of sitting all day at a cozy little print shop like this in Paris. The print experts bring me folder after folder of exotic and antique prints to fill my personal wooden easel. These are the type of shops I wish we had more of in New York ( yes, we have a few but not enough). This lovely shop is situated in the heart of the Left Bank at 74, rue de Seine (ps of course I’m doing this wearing a chunky navy cashmere turtleneck and my most comfy worn jeans! #perfectday)

Vintage Photo

H&B_1954_SartorialistWeb

My parents on a winter excursion. According to my mother, the photo was taken in 1955 or 56 on the Feldberg, a mountain close to Frankfurt/Germany, where they were living at the time and had met not too long before. My mother remembers her jacket to be a Bogner design in dark blue poplin with a red and white seam around the inset of the hood. She says she was very proud of this Jacket and I can understand why.
