Trends and treasures were on the blue carpet, by Marion Fasel
Before the 2017 MET Gala, celebrating exhibition Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between, people joked there would be no jewelry because the spirit of the party was such an avant-garde designer there would be no room in the ensembles for gems.
Well, I knew otherwise. My colleague and co-author for many years, Penny Proddow wore Comme desGarçons, or as those who wear the designer like to say “Rei,” almost exclusively. And she piled jewelry right on top of it creating totally eye-catching looks.
There were lots of eye catching styles on the blue carpet at the MET Gala including trends we have been tracking at The Adventurine: shoulder dusters, chokers and suites. There were also just great treasures.
