skin and bones

The National Art Center in Roppongi Hills is doing an exhibition called Skin + Bones: Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture. They will be showing some of my favorite big name designers like Comme des Garcons, Dries Van Noten and Maison Martin Margiela, including pieces from Hussein Chalayan's s/s 2000 collection which I really really loved. Also I think it's about time I learned a few things about contemporary Japanese architecture--it's something I've always conciously avoided because I find our housing structures to be really effing ugly, generally speaking. Judging from what I've read and seen, I think the exhibition might be worth checking out. Lucky for me, it's showing until August 13 which still gives me plenty of time to get those final papers and exams out of the way. Pictured above are Junya Watanabe and Viktor & Rolf.
