A few details from Reigning Men

Does the Reigning Men exhibit at LACMA make you think of the song, It's Raining Men by The Weather Girls?  Methinks the curators at LACMA have a sense of humor.  After all, they placed the Reigning Men exhibit next to the Robert Mapplethorpe show.

I'm just going to show you a few pictures to whet your appetite.

This is one of the many, many gorgeous ensembles on view.
But check out the hand-embroidered buttons that tie all the colors and patterns of the ensemble together.
Check out the way the line continues from one shoe to the next.
The poster for the exhibit, with a close-up of this coat, may have come home with me.
If you are new to this blog, you might want to read 25 years, which I originally posted in June 2006.
