Yesterday I went on a day trip to the city, which was so fun. By the end of the day, I could barely walk, but it was all worth it.
I started the day by visiting the FIT Museum, which I recommend to anyone interested to go, since admission is free and the exhibits are always really interesting.
Above are pictures from the first exhibit I saw. It was a Yves Saint Laurent and Halston mash-up, and started out with a timeline of both their careers. In the larger room, it was like a showcase of the two designers’ lines throughout their lives and much of their work was placed side by side. Some of their work was actually quite similar and it was great being time-warped back to the 70s.
The following exhibit was called Faking It, which displayed replicas of designer items compared side to side with the original designer item. The picture on the right shows the Homies shirt and Ain’t Laurent Without Yves, and told of the debate of whether or not the creative twist on the shirt was copying the original. The same with Moschino’s McDonalds inspired line, with people arguing if the trademark company’s designs could be used.
The last exhibit was called Lauren Bacall: The Look. I really admire her cool confidence and her style. From the short clips that they showed, I can tell that she was such a lovely person.
Cute street and shop that I walked by.
I had lunch at Jack’s Wife Freda. So good.
I ended the day with a lot of shopping. I went to The Reformation (above left), Topshop (above right), Brandy Melville, Aritzia, Urban Outfitters, and a lot more.
