TOTAL RUDI FROM ONE CLOSET


I love Rudi Gernreich clothing.  I love Rudi so much that I am the curator of the exhibit THE TOTAL LOOK: The Creative Collaboration between Rudi Gerrneich, Peggy Moffitt, and William Claxton, which resumes its tour in 2015 at the Cincinnati Museum of Art, after a successful debut at MOCA Los Angeles, followed by SCAD Museum in Savannah.  Rudi famously said "fashion will go out of fashion" but looking at these four examples of his Harmon wool knits, all I can think about is how fashionable they remain.  How would you style these futuristic ensembles to make them thoroughly modern in 2013?  They all come out of the same closet from a woman who wore them and took great care of them through the decades.
