MFIT Exhibit Sneak Peek

The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology has granted an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse at “Ivy Style” the exhibit as it reaches the final stages of preparation.

Above, passages from Fitzgerald’s “This Side Of Paradise” will adorn the walls.

Below, the exhibit hall recreates various parts of a campus and adjacent college town, including a menswear shop. Below is the campus quad:

The duo did much of the styling:

Finally, an advance copy of the accompanying book. A sneak peek of that will follow. ā€” CC

  1. Looks like it is going to be a complete IVY FAIL, there are colors! šŸ˜‰

    Looks good. Is there an opening reception?

  3. Amory’s name is misspelled in their excerpt, unless I’m missing something.

  4. Yikes, you’re right. I’ll alert them.

  5. “Armory”, isn’t that where “corpse men” sometimes work and “new cle ear” weapons are stored? šŸ˜‰

    Don’t forget to announce the sale of “the book”. I need a new coffee table book. The women I bring home are starting to notice that most of the countries in my huge hardcover Nat. Geographic Atlas don’t exist anymore.

  6. Good catch, Patrick. I thought my eyes were deceiving me.

  7. I am looking forward to that book and the sneak peek.

  8. Mr Press looking cool in the pink!

    I wish the book cover had been white and blue striped oxford cloth, or regimentally striped silk, or herringbone tweed and khaki. Far more appropriate than the odd combination of colors in that madras.

  10. “Armory”?

    Let’s hope that the people at the MFIT are more careful about details of style than they are about details of spelling.

    Or will we be seeing such examples as I.V. Style Cambridge cloth button ups, regimental stripped Thais, Brass weejams, Cracky trousers, and navy braziers from Books Brothers, Jay Pressed, and others?

  11. Stoked for the exhibit! After seeing those mannequins, I am faced with the dilemma of what to wear to the opening event. It’s a fun dilemma nonetheless.

  12. My girlfriend literally lives on the block of the museum. I plan on multiple visits.
