The Reading List….Sonia Delaunay

sonja2915webWhen I was in Paris last month I was able to pick up a copy of the Sonia Delaunay book from her ongoing exhibit at The Paris Museum of Modern Art (still open through February 22nd).

 

What intrigued me the most about Delaunay was her beautiful textile work. It’s lovely to see not only her well known paintings, but her fabrics, her illustrations, and all of  the black & white photos from that period.

 

The exhibit will be moving onto The Tate Modern Museum in London from April 15th – August 9th 2015.

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.
