Though I have no idea where I’m living come June this summer, I already know what I’ll be doing the first week off — visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Yes, I am a fine arts snob, but that’s not entirely why I want to go. I adore fashion, and the museum is hosting Roberto Capucci: Art into Fashion, which runs until June 5.
Over spring break, my mom and I visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art and were able to sneak a peak, when the installers were setting up the exhibition, and from what I saw, the fashion looked absolutely divine.
Hailing from Italy, Capucci utilized bold colors and dramatic forms in his work. With over 80 works in the exhibition, this is the first time his collections have appeared in the United States. To find out about the exhibition, check out the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s website.
