5 Vintage Punk Techniques from Met PUNK The Metropolitan Museum of Art s 2013 Costume Institute exhibit, "PUNK: Chaos to Couture," which ran May 9 through August 14, explored the anti establishment punk movement of the late 70s and early 80s and the impact of vintage punk clothing on today s fashion, particularly high end designer garments. The annual fashion exhibit kicked open its doors to celebs on May 6 at the glitzy Costume Institute Benefit Gala, otherwise known as the Met Ball. True punks, who embraced anarchy and the obscene, would have probably thought the event s fanfare and the exhibit s high fashion punk inspired clothes were just a bunch of bollocks punks shunned the establishment, after all. But for neo punks, punk wannabes or fashionistas, "PUNK" offers an organized view of the studs, spikes, chains, safety pins, trash, paint, cigarette burns and razors that inspired mainstream fashion brands like Chanel, Givenchy, Versace, Burberry, Comme des Gar and Dior. Stepping into the darkened galleries is like walking into CBGB, the now closed downtown Manhattan club that spawned punk legends like The Ramones and Patti Smith. One of the first things you see is a replica of CBGB s trashed out unisex bathroom with toilets and urinals out in the open, sans doors. Garbled music and videos of Sex Pistols patriarchs Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious play on grainy wall sized screens in the exhibit s rooms that each focus on punk s DIY fashion techniques, including "hardware," "bricolage" (clothes made of trash), "graffiti and agitprop" (propaganda) and "destroy" anything torn, shredded, burned or deconstructed. At the end of the exhibit, a spiky haired mannequin flips nike free run 5.0 review you the bird on the way out an appropriate ending to an anti establishment retrospective. While "PUNK," curated by Andrew Bolton, makes for a cool, worthwhile trip to the Met, it lacks the wow factor and emotion of 2011 s Alexander McQueen exhibit "Savage Beauty" that drew flocks of visitors (maybe it s because the designer had just died in 2010). DIY Vintage Punk Clothing True vintage clothing must be more than 20 years old, so punk garments from the late 70s, 80s and (surprisingly) very early 90s qualify as vintage. As seen in the Met exhibit, elements of punk are still a part of today s fashion (especially studs, which made a big comeback in 2012 on handbags, shoes and accessories). So if you re hungry to find vintage punk clothing or to recreate the DIY punk aesthetic with thrift store concert T shirts or shredded knit sweaters get inspired by these five techniques on display in "PUNK: nike air max blue Chaos to Couture." 1. AdornDave Benett/Getty Images Turn any garment into a heavy metal statement piece by adding safety pins, like Versace 1994 safety pin dress. Model Elizabeth Hurley made this dress famous when she poured her dynamite body into the slinky black number and walked with her then boyfriend Hugh Grant on the red carpet at the "Four Weddings and a Funeral" premiere in London that same year. In 2012, nike free 5.0 Lady Gaga donned the famed Versace dress, but the reception was not as positive. 2. DeconstructPhoto by Catwalking Give any sweater a punk edge by unraveling a few threads and pulling and stretching it into a new shape that shuns all rules. Look at Junya Watanabe manic sweaters from fall/winter 2006 7 for inspiration. 3. BurnPhoto by David Sims/Vogue Oh, the holes! Any Chanel fan will gasp at the sight of nike air free a Karl Lagerfeld designed Chanel suit (this one from spring/summer 2011) riddled with half dollar sized cigarette burns. Can t afford to burn Chanel? Try the technique on thrift store jeans or a distressed denim jacket. 4. ShockCourtesy of Metropolitan Museum of Art Try a daring T shirt with a political or sexual message, like the subversive tees created by Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren in their London shop Seditionaries from 1976 nike free run trainer 5.0 to 1980. In the exhibit, a replica of the shop showcases T shirts featuring cowboys genitalia, a pair of breasts, Queen Elizabeth and shredded British flags. The clothing in the shop (originally titled SEX and later inspired The Sex Pistols moniker) shaped the punk movement and influenced future designers. 5. PaintCourtesy of Metropolitan Museum of Art When in doubt, splatter paint it like Dolce Gabbana spring/summer 2008 silk organza and tulle gowns emblazoned with punk graffiti. Pretty in punk, the mannequins in the exhibit look fierce with their colorful spiky wigs and don hands on the Victorian inspired silhouettes.

5 Warning Signs That You re Finally Getting Older Look, I m not going to bullshit you. You are going to get old, and it is going to happen lightning fast. You won t see it coming. You ll just be living your life the way you always have, thinking, "Man, I sure am young. There is little in life that I enjoy more than the simple knowledge of how completely not old I am." And then one day, out of the blue, you ll air max 1 leopard have a horrifying realization that people have stopped viewing you as an ultra cool, iconic masterpiece of sexuality . now you re just some kid s parent. An annoying teacher. The asshole supervisor. There will be no warning. 5. Slang Genuinely Makes You Angry You never stop learning new words I had never heard the term "hubris" until about two years ago, and now I see it used in every TV show I watch, every article I read, every police statement I have to sign. But when you re young, you re learning new words constantly because your mind is still fresh, and it turns out that there is a shitload of words out there, many of which double for "penis" in the right context. In the rush of learning, slang just slips in like a Game of Thrones fuck scene. It doesn t seem out of place because it s just another word you ve never heard or used before, no different from any of the other dozen you learned that week. So if you grew up in the 60s and 70s, a term like "groovy" or "hunk" didn t seem like the unwashed underwear stains of language . Wanna get baked and give my dick a righteous disease? I mentioned that you never stop learning words, but there does come a point where the frequency slows to a near stop. And when a new one pops up, you can tell if it s real or just made up bullshit. For instance, when I heard the aforementioned "hubris," I knew it was a real thing before I filled my clipboard and opened up Google. It didn t sound "clever" or edgy. It didn t have some ridiculous spelling. It didn t sound like an acronym or a shortened version of a longer word. But the first time I heard someone say "probs" in place of "probably," it took every ounce of willpower I could muster to not punch them in their stupid goddamn lips for having made that noise. I also renounced the very air that made sound waves possible when I heard the first dumb asshole say "cray cray" nike free womens instead of "crazy." Even widely accepted ones like "veggies" make me want to grab the person saying it by their neck and scream into their face, "YOU ARE AN ADULT!" Even if they re not. "Veggies" is what a 3 year old says because she can t pronounce "vegetables" yet! I have no right. I totally understand this. It s just a word, and unless it s hurting someone, my reaction to hearing it should be nothing short of apathy. But I guess that s sort of the point. The fact that I m reacting in that way to what should be a non issue is the sign that I m moving away from the section of my life where it was acceptable and normal ("rad," "wicked," "gag me with a spoon") and into the new section, where anyone who uses these terms immediately sets off my internal "Fucking Idiot" alarm. 4. Clothing Becomes ComplicatedYour outfit is who you are. Yes, even those of you who go out of your way to avoid name brands because you re your own person who doesn t fall victim to corporate bullshit. When I was a kid, especially in the grunge era, I swore that I didn t give a shit what I looked like or what I put on. I was just wearing what was comfortable, right? But if someone would have handed me a pile of ultra preppy clothes or a stack of jock type sportswear, I would have physically fought them to keep that shit off of my body. The point is, we all have our lines that we won t cross when it comes to clothing. When you re younger, you can get away with pretty much anything you want to wear because it s accepted that you re experimenting with style and expression. It s why we can make fun of that emo haircut where it looks like you were riding sideways in an open convertible, but we won t step in and cheap nike free shoes force you to stop . well, those of us who aren t assholes, at least. Yep, that hair will in no way come back to haunt you later in life. There s a moment of panic that I ran into the other day while shopping for clothes. I found an awesome shirt that I just loved. It fit perfect, it had a cool design, it was the right price . but right before I decided to add it to my "fuck yeah" pile, I noticed that I was standing in the "teens to young men" section. And in an instant, my shopping trip turned into an internal moral debate. I m 39. I don t have gray hair or wrinkles. I don t have an old man gut not yet, anyway. But even at a glance, it is apparent that I am a full grown man. Knowing that, I am well aware of the go to insult when people see middle aged people dressing in certain outfits: "God, that s so sad. He s a middle aged man who dresses like he s 18. He can t let go of his youth." I ve said it myself about other people some of them movie stars, and some of them just regular people I ve seen on the street. Part air max pink of me looks back on the guy who said that with shame, but an even bigger part says, "You do not want to be that creepy old douche who can t dress his age." "Grandma, we re going to have to demand that you to stop." And that s the weirdest part. What exactly is "dressing your age"? I ve seriously had to look it up because I have no idea, and what I found was . well, I still have no idea. As far as I can tell, it s just taming yourself down. Dressing more conservatively. Less rebellion, less edge, less attention grabbing patterns, less everything. Now, don t get me wrong here: I m still going to dress the way I want, but for the first time in my life, I m doing that with caution. Now I have to consider the options of: Do I wear Justin Bieber s designer Chanel ski mask and cocked fedora outfit? Or do I go with the more conservative nike air max usa double zipper onesie of his bodyguard? 3. Technology Stops Making Sense (Even if You re Tech Literate)When you re a kid, you don t sit and marvel at the complexity and wonder of a cellphone. You just use it to send racist messages to your friends. And just like every other facet of material life, when one thing starts to get stale, we invent another similar version and move on to that, abandoning the old concepts. How many people reading this article still regularly use Myspace after Facebook became a thing? And how many abandoned that when Google+ became a OK, I guess the analogy falls through there, but you get my point, right? In that same vein, we are quick to try out new technologies, because just like fashion or finding a really badass band, there s a rush you get from being the first in your social circle to be in on the ground floor before it gets huge and becomes the norm. Because of that, it s easy to skip through program after program after program, keeping the ones that are useful and forgetting the ones that aren t. Let s face it: Dick Logger was an app that was bound to come back and bite people in the ass. And then you reach a certain age, and novelty just doesn t mean jack shit anymore. It s all about usefulness now because you re busy, and you don t have time to fuck around with learning some new program or piece of hardware if it s not going to have a major payoff. For that reason, I have a smartphone, but I only use it to text and call and take an occasional picture. Ninety percent of its abilities are lost on me. I m going to assume that the underlying need for function is why I don t get Vine. For those who don t know, it s an app that lets you post six second looping video clips to the Internet. By default the sound is turned off, so to me, it just looks like a high quality animated gif. But then when you unmute the sound, it turns into . well, an animated gif with sound. It s like a YouTube version of Twitter, and I cannot for the life of me understand why it got popular. Yet, at the same time, one of my all time favorite sites is 5 Second Films, so it s not like I m lost on the premise. Given, the 5SF crew are masters of the art, whereas Vine users are regular people with a time limit."OK, chug that sucker. We ll have to film my hilarious Charles Ramsey imitation on the way." Keep in mind, I m not new to computers. I ve been using them since the early 80s. But even with decades of experience, I don t understand when someone gets mad that a Facebook user posts a full article or essay. I ve heard Facebook people say, "Take it to Tumblr." Who in turn tell people to "start a blog." And to this day, I ve yet to be able to tell the difference between the three. All of them have the same abilities to post photos, video, and text . but for some reason the users have decided that one of the sites is used for photos, one site is used for short messages, and the other site is used for My Little Pony fuck fiction. And my rapidly aging, bitter mind just gives up, saying, "Fuck em. Post what you want. If they don t like it, they can just lick my asshole."
