Each Spring, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute debuts a new exhibit.  This year, it is Manus X Machina – Fashion in an Age of Technology.  Many of the couture elite are represented in the collection – Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Iris van Herpen, Balenciaga, Raf Simons, Issey Miyake, and Christopher Kane.  The pieces are varied; some are beautiful even though they incorporate non-traditional materials and machined-techniques.  Others, looks like rejects from a B-rated 60’s sci-fi movie.  Overall, the exhibit is interesting, especially the 3D printed pieces.  Take a look at the photos below and in the next post.  However, it lacks the excitement of last year’s exhibit – China: Through the Looking Glass.
