“Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations”

The Met’s survey of Alexander McQueen last spring proved a box-office bonanza, attracting huge crowds that made it the museum’s eighth-biggest draw on record. Expect more of the same with this exhibit bringing together the work of two iconic names of cutting-edge Italian fashion from two different eras: Elsa Schiaparelli, who died in 1973, and current fashion mogul Miuccia Prada. Director Baz Luhrmann created eight short films in which the women—Judy Davis (The Starter Wife) plays Schiaparelli—discuss their provocative designs alongside more than 100 garments and accessories.
