A wealth of fashion history

We have a wealth of stories set for our January issue, which is especially fitting, since our theme for the first month of 2017 – “A Year of Explorations” – is wealth itself, in its many interpretations and incarnations.

One story is devoted to a recent visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan, a trip that once again proved the depth of treasures within The Costume Institute at The Met Fifth Avenue.

Specifically, “Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion,” an exhibition that continues through Feb. 5, showcases the Institute’s significant acquisitions of the last decade.

Walking through the show is not only a walk through history but also some of the most significant names in fashion history.

Think of creations from the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, Raf Simons, Christian Louboutin, Maison Margiela, Paul Poiret, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Philip Treacy, Yohji Yamamoto and so many others.

It’s another must-see for fashionistas, so check out the full story in our January issue.
