Met Gala and Metropolitan Museum Exibition’s Style in Koket’s World
Being in the spotlight challenges most celebrities to wear clothes and choose a style that reflect their personality and show off their individuality. Koket’s World works the same way: each single piece embrace its own personality and concept. Today we’ll show you how the style at the Met Gala and the Metropolitan Museum Exhibition fit perfectly into Koket’s World.
Met Gala 2015
The elegant silhouette of our Eternity chandelier takes its brilliance from the skillful application of the crystal. The eternal circles are individually wrapped in brass and placed with astonishing attention to detail. The end result is an extraordinary source of light. Just like Kim Kardashian, this piece is the star in every room.
Beyonce is definitely a KOKET’s style lady. Her playfully-patterned sundresses and coordinated accessories are festive, flirty, and feminine! She’s totally into our Koket’s world. Such as Beyonce, our Eternity Sconce is festive and girly and definitely transport you to another world in a crazy beautiful kind of way.
Just like our Geisha, Jennifer Lopez style is exotic but super classy. Designed to perform in a matter that indulges the eyes, the Geisha‘s curves grace a room with the extravagance and poise of a Kyoto Geisha. Fully upholstered tight back Sofa with soft tufting on the cushions. A polished brass band wraps the piece leading to a modern & sleek polished brass foot complimenting a fully upholstered black velvet structure.
The resemblance from this dress wore by Keri Russell from Altuzarra to our Divine Armoire, cannot be unseen. This utterly desirable double door pagoda top armoire is covered in delicate iridescent peacock feathers each individually placed. An exquisite metal ribbon opens the doors to a lavish interior graced with four antique mirror drawers & two adjustable glass shelves. Body finished in high gloss black lacquer, peacock feather covered doors, and base and top covered in gold leaf.
Metropolitan Museum Exhibition
In what is one of the biggest exhibitions undertaken by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the China: Through the Looking Glass exhibition which took more than 2 years to plan, showcases 150 dresses, gowns, costumes and accessories from 40 designers.
The new exhibition which opens and 7 May and runs through 16 August, is organized by The Costume Institute in collaboration with the Department of Asian Art, will explore the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion, and how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for centuries.
High fashion will be juxtaposed with Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery.
This Dress From Valentino represents the true idea of China Through the Looking glass. For us, the style and inspiration are as exotic as our Sevilliana. the Sevilliana sofa design embodies the graceful curves and attire of Sevillana dancing girls. Become entranced in the movement of modern lines drawing your eye down to the flirtatious fringe that skirts the base.
The innocent drama of a whimsical butterfly through the enchanted journey of life. The Nymph chandelier embraces the wild side of this rare and beautiful animal that so gracefully bejewels the lighting fixture. Delicate brass butterflies hover in the air in perfect harmony composing an overblown dramatic silhouette, which gives shape to a luxurious golden chandelier. Nymph is a truthful legacy of KOKET’s haute couture experience in exquisite goods, goddess-y shapes and hand-crafted drama. So dramatic as the Jean Paul Gautier dress.
Greek blue is one of the hottest trends in 2015. Both Boca do Lobo and Roberto Cavalli know this very well. Hand-painted-tiles have gained a privileged place in architecture throughout the centuries. Portugal has adopted them like no other country has and in order to honor the Portuguese hand painted tiles, Boca do Lobo created Heritage Sideboard. This piece presents a different number of layers, where each one tells a different story.
The exhibition takes its name from Lewis Carroll’s 1871 novel “Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There,” because it is about entering another world.
“Like Alice’s make-believe world, the China reflected in the fashion in the exhibition is fictional, fabulous and ancient, offering an alternate reality,” said curator Andrew Bolton, adding it is about the collective fantasy of China.
A maze of galleries showcase Chinese calligraphy, perfume bottles and blue-and-white porcelain along with print dresses, fabulous beaded gowns and embroidered jackets by the Western designers influenced by them. One room is devoted to opium and the Chinese impact on Yves Saint Laurent’s 1977 Fall/Winter collection with its Mongol-influenced fur jackets and coats.
Filmic representations of China will be incorporated throughout to reveal how our individual visions of China are framed by narratives that draw upon popular culture, and also to recognize the importance of cinema as a medium through which to understand the richness of Chinese history.
