Taking It All In…

Make a wish.

It came true.

I opened my eyes and it was Saturday in New York City, signifying endless possibilities.

The day was exquisite.

We then headed out to the MET to see the latest Costume Institute 2017 Exhibition, Art of the In-Between, featuring Rei Kawakubo, the founder and designer behind Comme des Garcons (“like some boys”).

Since Comme des Garçons inception in 1969, the Tokyo based designer has consistently defined and refined fashion aesthetics.

Rei Kawakubo’s collections continually upend conventional notions of beauty and fashionable body image, establishing an unsettling zone of visual ambiguity and elusiveness.

Also on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art are the amazing photographs of legendary photographer, Irving Penn.

The evening concluded at that bastion of yumminess, Sociale in Brooklyn Heights.

The food was over the top, the wine beyond gratifying and Francesco made what might be the final birthday celebration of 2017, memorable.

That was just Saturday,
