The Walker Art Center "Off Center" blog has a very detailed post about the color of the moment, International Klein Blue, and its significance in the fashion industry. The Walker's next major exhibition will be a retrospective of the color's creator, Yves Klein - the first major U.S. retrospective of the painter in more than 30 years. It's a great case in point of how art influences fashion, and vice versa.
The show opens with the Walker's popular "Walker After Hours" preview party on October 22, always a must-go social gathering. Don your International Klein Blue dress - or suit - and come see this acclaimed exhibition before it opens to the public. Get details here.
