From aviator glasses to yoga pants: MoMA's 'Items' asks, Is Fashion Modern?

Question: Is fashion modern? Answer: Yes. Reproduced from Items: Is Fashion Modern?—available for preorder from MoMA—this pair of 1890 Levi Strauss & Co. waist overalls is just one example of the ultimate fashion paradox: jeans. “At once universal and highly personal, they reflect our anxiety about both fitting in and standing out,” Stephanie Kramer writes. Other fashion “items” featured in the book include aviator sunglasses, capri pants, dashikis, fanny packs, fleece, hoodies, kippahs, miniskirts, red lipstick, safety pins, sunscreen, Swatch watches, turtlenecks, Wonderbras, and yoga pants.
