Amid the feathers and over-the-top theatrics of celebrity get-ups at last night’s Met Gala, themed for the latest exhibition, “Camp, Notes on Fashion”, there were several exuberant yet wearable looks. At MintModa we’ve been exploring the “good taste of bad taste” for a while, this season in Trend Tales Magical Thinking and Marvel Noir, SS 20 in Lotus Land, and previous seasons in the Extroverts and Faux Couture. The notion of “camp” is hard to pin down exactly, but its irreverence, irony, high-low mix and look-at-me attitude seem right for our times.
