Dress(es) of the day, from left: Roberto Capucci's "Bougainvillea" Sculpture Dress (1989) and "Ventaglio" (Fan) Sculpture Dress (1980)
In honor of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's exhibit Roberto Capucci: Art into Fashion, which closes today. Capucci's creations are spectacular. His conception that clothing is a "habitat" for the woman is fascinating. He combines virtuosic craftmanship with multivalent artistic allusions to create monumental artworks.
Here I am with Roberto Capucci at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I'm thrilled to have met him. Link to the exhibit: www.philamuseum.org/exhibitions/411.html
