Day Trip to NYC
Jeff had a friend visiting from Korea who wanted to take a day trip to New York City. So when he asked me if I wanted to go, I couldn't say "yes" any faster because I knew that the Met had just opened the "Savage Beauty" exhibit in honour of the late Alexander McQueen. Running from May 4, 2011 to July 31, 2011, I couldn't pass the opportunity. Of course, on the way to the Met, an obligatory stop at the Maison was in order. Ahhhh...it was like visiting a grand ol' house... ...with an ostrich for a butler! These windows are so creative! LVoe it!!! The Ostrich was carrying the Le Délicieux in Shiny Crocodile. Quite an expensive taste to have in one's beak, don't you think? I must admit that the gaze of the bird was a little unnerving. Even though these are not actual taxidermic specimens, (they are only SIMULATED ostriches) I could almost hear it squack saying that "I died to hold a Louis!" I wonder how long it took for these exotiques to hatch? Note: supposedly, these are actual ostrich eggs. I guess Vuitton is pushing the shape of the Lockit to be it's exotic answer to the Birkin. Sigh, the FAN...it's $4K...boohoo... Sandale Artifice in Patent Leather & Suede I wouldn't mind having the Autruche Zippy in Gris. LVoe it!!! I spent a long time relishing the RTW on the second and third floors and took a snap shot of an accessory that stood out for me. Interestingly enough it is called the Savage Pendant. Perfect for the McQueen exhibit! Ailleurs Ready to Wear. That's it folks for LV. Now on to the museum! At the steps of the Met. Gosh my hair LVooks horrid! The entrance to the exhibit is flanked by two McQueen pieces. Unfortunately, you can't take photos inside because the Met does not own all that is on display. I highly recommend the catalogue of the exhibit entitled "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" by Andrew Bolton. I bought a souvenir ornament of McQueen's Armadillo Shoe and was pleasantly surprised to find out that it's made in the Philippines!!! Imelda will be proud of that! LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!! Thanks for LVooking!
