After work yesterday, I met a couple friends at the Met so we could check out the Costume Institute's Superheroes exhibit. Not to get all cerebral on you guys, but I love love love visual studies and the kinds of societal analysis that this exhibit had (check out their website if you care to find out more). My favorite paper that I've written in college was about how gender roles become more exacerbated in fashion during economic recessions and I went through scores of runway shows for research to do a psychoanalysis reading...(nerdynerdynerdy), so you can imagine how excited I was when I finally got to see all the clothes after reading all the introspective analysis online. On an aesthetic note, they had the gold armored Balenciaga leggings which were AMAZING and Hussein Chalayan dresses, not to mention all these great Thierry Mugler pieces. If you have the opportunity to catch the exhibit before it closes, I really recommend it.
