Elsa Schiaparell and Hanae Mori
Woke up this morning feeling a bit reckless so I decided to cheer myself up by taking a trip to the new Cocktail dress exhibition at the local design museum. It was a small exhibition, just 30 dresses or so, but the range was good, from Elsa Schiaparelli to Pucci to Hussein Chalayan. Of course this being a small museum in Sweden the collection doesn't feature the best and most known works from each designer, but I appreciate seeing less iconic styles. My favorite find was Japanese designer Hanae Mori who had the most beautiful black and white silk coat in the exhibition (see the first photo). Sorry for the grainy mobile photos, let's just say that I didn't comply with the photo prohibition. Perhaps I will get an angry email if they ever find this blog, so enjoy the pics while they last!
