split up into themes, the show will focus on college life: a grassy quad, a classroom, a dorm and a library. an area devoted to varsity sports and athletic wear will also be included along with a ‘university shop’. and of course, all the boys will be there: Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers, Tommy Hilfiger and J. Press.
tho the exhibit focuses on menswear, where the look began, the ‘ivy league look’ is a strong influence today for fashion of both sexes. *insert shameless Gossip Girl plug here*. uniquely east coast, born and bred on the campuses of Yale, Princeton and Harvard, this buttoned-up style is classic American. there is nothing better than a well fitted jacket with a crest on it and a button down shirt with knee-high socks and a skirt.
a book of essays, also entitled ‘Ivy League’ (check it out HERE), will accompany the exhibit. Ive League will open September 14 and show thru January 5.
