The Met's Amazing Collection

This morning I was browsing through New York's Metropolitan Museum's digital collection database. According to their website, the Costume Institute has a collection of over 31,000 costumes and accessories! They have so many amazing pieces- I had to share!
Rudi Gernreich, 1967
These two dresses are my personal favorite! The cut outs are still futuristic even 40+ years later!

Yohji Yamamoto, S/S 1993.
Such a fantastic knit! I am so crazy for this dress.
Alexander McQueen. “Oyster Dress,” S/S 2003. 
Richard Tam for House of Balenciaga, 1968.
Salvatore Ferragamo, 1938.
These platforms have always been a favorite of mine. The design was so modern for it's time.

As Four, 2003
Christian Lacroix, 2005
Philip Treacy for Alexander McQueen. “Chinese Garden” S/S 2005.
