Reigning Men-LACMA

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Impeccable menswear at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Modern Art) for the “Reigning Men” exhibit, for anyone who loves fashion, menswear, or history to show how much fashion has evolved. What’s special about this exhibit is not only because it features 200 looks but it shows present day clothing from designers like Tom Ford, Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Ralph Lauren, Issey Miyake, Jeremy Scott and many more with their historical influences.  It’s a exhibit that’s easy to follow because all the eras are in chronological order, one sees the changes of how menswear got simpler in some eras and more colorful in others. This exhibit covers mens fashion from the 18th century till the 21st century from places like the USA, France, England, Scotland, Belgium and Austria.

My personal favorite parts of the exhibit is seeing the detailed embroidered gold coats of the 18th century and I am a sucker for Regency and Victorian fashion. It’s a dream come true to see those pieces of clothing come to life.

It’s another perspective to see historical clothing in person than drawings and paintings in books. I highly recommend visiting the “Reigning Men” Exhibit.
