A visit to the Neue Galerie on the iconic corner of 5th Ave and 86th st. often turns into a hunt for sartorial bliss.
A few months ago, I went with a friend to see the Early 20th Century German Advertisements on display. The bold use of color blocking and thick black outlines really resonated with me. That amazing Être Cécile shirt I bought a couple months prior seemed relevant and intriguing.
I went back to see the Gustav Klimt exhibition (going on through January 16!) and was struck, as I always am, by the use of color in his beautiful, gilded works. The clothes and accessories in Klimt’s work continually inspires me to reexamine how I choose to get dressed each day and to ultimately, infuse more color and pattern into my normally dark winter wardrobe.
Where else do you draw your sartorial inspiration from?
