A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Exhibition Tour—About Time: Fashion and Duration with Andrew Bolton

Metropolitan Museum of Art / New York

This year’s Costume Institute show is part of the Met’s larger 150th-anniversary celebration, and its theme, fittingly, is about “fashion and duration.” In a moment where fast fashion reigns and today’s trends feel old tomorrow, “About Time” speaks to the designs and silhouettes that both stand the test of time and evoke specific moments in history.
