How the East inspired the West – China Through the Looking Glass at the Met

Studio +

Extravagant, flamboyant, chic and eclectic. All these notions/adjectives can be applied to the new exhibition that opened yesterday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which will be on view till the 16th of August.

For all of you who like to dive in to the fusion of East and West, here’s a photo series that we made on the opening day of this unique show which gathers the best of eastern art and western fashion.

Some of the works on display include dresses by John Galliano, Yves Saint-Laurent, Ralph Lauren, Alexander McQueen, Guo Pei, Craig Green, Jean Paul Gaultier and Coco Chanel. Videos that you will see at the exhibition were edited by the stunning Wong Kar-wai.
