This year’s Costume Institute Exhibition held by Vogue magazine and Metropolitan Museum of Art has the striking title of Punk: Chaos to Couture. The title shows all the meaning and concept of this influential fashion exhibition. Many designers, especially American, created the punk-influenced pieces or collections for their Fall/Winter 2013 and also we can see the rising of grunge fashion via Saint Laurent collection this fall.
The influence of this trend reaches Indonesia, too, although not as big as other fashion conscious countries. We can see it in via the window display of Jade at Plaza Indonesia. Giant studs, so tightly placed they look like durian fruit, in white color become the backdrop for three mannequins set in the punk style outfit. There is a punk queen here with crown made of wire, skull necklace, and a gown by Azzedine Alaia that comes in black color. Her two lady-in-waiting have spiky hair, so long they look like hedgehog, and wear stockings to cover their face. Last but not least, chain and safety pin are completing the look of those mannequins. Amazing !
