The Met’s Costume Institute—responsible for 2011’s blockbuster “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibit—investigates the aesthetics of punk culture and how it has influenced designers like Vivienne Westwood, Laura Mulleavy (Rodarte), Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel) and Gianna Versace. Expect to hear plenty of the Ramones, the Sex Pistols and the Clash while you check out 100 garments ranging from shredded, safety-pinned ’70s outfits to contemporary couture.
