Items: Is Fashion Modern?
The Museum of Modern Art
From October 1, 2017 to January 28, 2018

 

Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present, past – and sometimes the future – of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries – and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi’s 501s, the Breton shirt, and the Little Black Dress, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari, the pearl necklace, the kippah, and the keffiyeh.

Ardeola: contemporary design pieces

 

The name Ardeola (the official latin name of the pond heron bird) dates back to the childhood of Ercsényi Miklós, when his grandparents had a sculpture that formed a very slender heron bird with its beam pointing up to the sky – all carved from one single wood. Later this sculpture became of Ercsényi and he has chosen it to be the logo of their company. The sculpture has finally got broken but the name remained.

From 21 to 24 September 2017

 

The British Fashion Council (BFC) is delighted to announce that luxury womenswear brand, Mother of Pearl, 2017 winner of the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, has been commissioned to design this season’s London Fashion Week Festival limited edition tote bag. The bag’s design draws inspiration from Dutch florals and the use of darkness and light in the paintings of artists such as Caravaggio and Jan Van Huysum. Mother of Pearl’s brand mantra is ‘Serious fashion, not to be worn too seriously’, so the striped sporty handles are the perfect partnership to the beautiful botanical print.

Curated goods made from meticulously selected materials and developed with a blend of innovation and tradition. squarestreet does not follow, nor does it lead. Instead, it lives by its own laws of simplicity, functionality and beauty.
