La mostra sarà presentata in una “trinità” di location: l’Anna Wintour Costume Center, la galleria medievale nella location del MET nella Fifth Avenue e nei MET Cloisters a Manhattan.

Sacro & profano, in questa mostra che vuole mettere in luce come la moda si sia grandemente ispirata all’iconografia religiosa.

La mostra presenterà capi ecclesiastici resi disponibili dal Vaticano, manufatti di arte religiosa della collezione del Met e più di 150 creazioni di stilisti che hanno reso omaggio al cattolicesimo.

The exhibition will be spread over three locations: the Met’s Costume Center, its medieval galleries and further uptown at the Met Cloisters.

Between sacred and profane, this exhibition aims to highlit how fashion has borrowed heavily from the church’s rich visual history.

The exhibition will feature ecclesiastical garb borrowed from the Vatican, religious art from the Met’s own collection and 150 designer garments that pay aesthetic homage to Catholicism.

Dai capi di Dolce & Gabbana marcatamente ispirati all’arte religiosa, a pop star come Lady Gaga e Madonna, che attraverso l’abbigliamento si sono rese nuove icone spirituali, la storia del stretto rapporto tra moda e religione è evidente.

Ci aspetta quindi un evento pieno di glamour soprattutto sul red carpet del Gala che quest’anno vedrà come host Rihanna, Amal Clooney e proprio Donatella Versace, che sponsorizzerà l’evento con la propria masion.

From Dolce & Gabbana sending religious imagery down the runway, to pop stars like Lady Gaga and Madonna using clothing to set themselves up as new spiritual icons, the history of fashion’s relationship with the Catholic church is evident.

The gala will be co-hosted by Rihanna, Donatella Versace (whose label is co-sponsoring the show) and Amal Clooney.

Che voi siate d’accordo o meno su questa commistione di generi, per una volta i capi di Dolce & Gabbana non risulteranno fuori tema.

Wheter or not you agree with this mix of categories, at least this time Dolce & Gabbana clothes will not be off topic.
