Yesterday the MFIT’s “Ivy Style” exhibit closed its doors. It was a fantastic experience for all involved, especially Richard Press, who earned a pair of gilded loafers for his efforts.
The MFIT has a nifty site devoted to the exhibit that we never linked to until now. It, along with the records of the exhibit itself, should go a long way in preserving the history of this style for the future, something that had never really been undertaken until the MFIT’s Patricia Mears decided that the Ivy League Look was worthy of museum attention. — CC
