At the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, a new show draws parallels between fashion designers Christian Dior and Cristóbal Balenciaga. On view are approximately 65 garments sourced from FIT’s permanent collection, offering an intimate look at the visual and actual relationships between the designers and their legacies. Those nostalgic for couture’s golden age will not want to miss the exhibition. Getting dressed for the occasion is easy: Opt for Balenciaga and Dior, of course. An example of a winning costume, below.
The beauties of the natural world and the precision of origami collide in the exhibition “Origami in the Garden,” on view now at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Scattered throughout the gardens are 18 installations featuring almost 70 metal sculptures inspired by the Japanese art of folding paper, all designed by Santa Fe–based artists Jennifer and Kevin Box. You’re probably going to take lots of photos during your visit, so you might as well ensure your ensemble is photogenic—and perhaps inspired by the pleats and folds of the artform? Start with Cecilie Bahnsen’s darling white dress and pair it with origami-bird-inspired dangly earrings. Coperni’s folded-leather black purse hits all the right notes, as does a pair of ruched-leather slides from Vince.
Those missing the palm trees just north of Manhattan’s Canal Street (brought in by Tulum hot spot Gitano for the past several summers) will be delighted to know they have been relocated to Governors Island, the isle just south of the city’s financial district. Gitano Island, a 27,000-foot indoor-outdoor space with sand underfoot and, yes, a disco ball overhead, will serve up the same Mexican bites and mezcal cocktails for which it’s well known. Plus, there will be DJ tunes (a night at Gitano ends on the dance floor, after all) and views of Manhattan’s skyline. Visit the new restaurant wearing something vacation-ready. Amur’s palm-tree-printed dress will look just right; pair it with some bamboo-accented accessories: a cane bag by J.W. Pei and some bamboo-buckle Gucci sandals. Finish it all off with Juvee Sun tortoiseshell specs from Garrett Leight for that perfect I’m-on-holiday look.
