Clubhouse Icons | Elsa Schiaparelli & Miuccia Prada | Impossible Conversations

Lately I've seen a few things 
posted around cyber city that pertain to a 
Spring 2012 
Costume Institute Exhibition 
taking place at 
The Met 
in
New York
!!!!!!!!!!!

It appears that from now until 
August 19th 
they'll be hosting an exhibit that explores the
"striking affinities"
between two fashion icons 

Miss. Elsa Schiaparelli 
(1890-1973)


&
Miss. Miuccia Prada
(1949- )




The exhibit is titled 
"Impossible Conversations" 
inspired by Miguel Covarrubia's
"Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s.

The exhibition host orchestrated conversations between 
the two fashionably brilliant women
it presents
fabulous ensembles with videos of 
simulated conversations amongst 
Schiaparelli & Prada 
Directed by 
Baz Luhrmann


Schiaparelli, whose work was associated with the surrealist movement 
and Prada, whose work is associated with postmodernism were both born 
in Italy to old time conservative Italian families 
and both decided to divert from the given path for a chosen path 
fairly early on in life

Elsa's 1st act of "rebellion" was in conceiving 
racy poems 
Miuccia, a child in the 60's,
 "mounted the leftist political barriers with her friends"
(according to trendland.net) 

It seems from youth,
 though living in two different era's,
 the two had much in common
.
There are 90 designs & 30 accessories combined total 
from both designers 
showcased in the exhibit 

The signature objects from both women 
are detailed in 7 themed galleries 

-Waist up/ Waist down
- Ugly Chic
- Hard Chic
Naïf  Chic
- The Classical Body
- The Exotic Body 
- The Surreal Body

What great fun it'd be to get this experience
