Camp: Notes on Fashion

One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art.”

Oscar Wilde, Phrases & Philosophies for the Use of the Young

The theme for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s summer exhibition this year, conceived in collaboration with Anna Wintour and US Vogue, is ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’, taken from the 1964 essay by Susan Sontag ‘Notes on Camp’. Sontag’s essay opened many people’s eyes to the concept, whilst she insisted that camp was impossible to articulate as it was more of a sensibility than anything else. We were first re-introduced to the concept in May 2018, when Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons shone a spotlight on Sontag’s text, sending out a note after her AW18 show to the editors, claiming to be inspired by it.

The MET’s summer exhibition is one of the main attractions of the year, with its inauguration ball attended by the most important celebrities in America. This year was no different, though the guests didn’t all rise to the occasion of the dress code and it’s notoriously difficult thematic, but the exhibition itself was a triumph.

Here we share with you some of our personal highlights from the exhibition!
