(New York, May 9, 2019)—Today, as The Costume Institute’s spring exhibition, Camp: Notes on Fashion, officially opens to the public, The Met Store has released an exclusive capsule collection—called Camp Icons—featuring illustrations by Angelica Hicks depicting notable personalities who reflect the camp sensibility.
The Met Store Releases Camp Icons Exclusive Capsule Collection in Conjunction with The Costume Institute’s Spring 2019 Exhibition,
Camp: Notes on Fashion
The line includes collectible enamel pins, iron-on patches, totes, tees, and zip pouches with images of Dapper Dan, Jean Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld, Alessandro Michele, Susan Sontag, and Anna Wintour.
Known for her witty visual puns and humorous designs, Hicks created the drawings expressly for the exhibition. “The only thing cooler than being commissioned by The Met Store to design a capsule collection was being given the freedom to interpret these camp icons in my own way,” says Hicks.
The collection is available for pre-order online today, and for purchase at The Met Fifth Avenue’s Camp: Notes on Fashion exhibition store in late May.
