Here are some creative projects that inspire me in The Metropolitan Museum of Art – The Costume Institute’s Collection. You can see other projects on my Pinterest or on my #ThrowbackFashion.

(Left figure) Courrèges‘ sensibility evolved from his training with Balenciaga. In this day ensemble, he applied the surgical cut and strict tailoring to the geometric planes of 1960s fabric. The thrown-back rolled collar derives from Balenciaga, as does a responsiveness to comfort. Attuned to the fashion of the very young, as inspired by Mary Quant and Pierre Cardin, Courrèges retained Balenciaga’s flattering attention to the details that obscure age.
