It’s a fun twist for fashion aficionados, especially those who are gung ho about “punk”. In conjunction to the this year’s Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum, Moda Operandi, the online American fashion retailer, is bringing together designers as Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Thom Browne and Vivienne Westwood, among others, to work on the lines of the Museum’s exhibition theme this year – “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” We’ve also heard that Moda Operandi would be sponsoring the event. Sources reveal that the prices of the pieces would range from $100 to $13,000, and the exhibition would begin on from May 9 going on until August 14. Featuring our favorite picks from the collection –
Embellished George V Tote –
A cone stud embellished leather tote bag from Givenchy with two flat top handles, stud buttoned belts, two device pockets on the inside, and an exposed zip pocket with a designer-stamped tag. The bag is an Italian make.
I Love NY Studded Tee –
The I Love NY Studded Tee is a custom, made-to-order tee from Eddie Borgo, and it features all-over stud embellishment. The tee is a direct slip-on, is 100% cotton, and is made in the USA.
One-Of-A-Kind: Studded Helmet with Feathers
A weird but punk creation, the studded helmet with feathers, is designed by Albertus Swanepoel. The helmet features a patent brim with a wool-felt base, metal spike studs, and duck feathers. It’s made in New York.
Another piece on sale is an intriguing Leather Chandelier that is harness-inspired. Designed by Fleet Ilya, the chandelier has been handcrafted and features gold-tone brass grommets. You can easily fix it to the ceiling with a heavy-duty brass plate. Its been made in London.
Gold Plated Hand Paper Weight
Saving the best for last, the item we have picked is a gilded, sculptural skeleton palm from Loha Vete. Made in the USA, the gold plated hand could be displayed as an unusual showpiece at your home.
