Cocktail Culture

Now through March 11, 2012 the Norton Museum of Art is hosting a fabulous exhibition that explores the cultural dynamic of the cocktail hour. Cocktail Culture features over 150 pieces of art, design and fashion that span everywhere from the 1920's to the present. The collection includes pieces from the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Newark Museum, the Tiffany & Co. Archive, Miottel Museum in California, and private lenders. Cocktail attire from top fashion houses such as Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Yves, Saint Laurent, Norman Norell, Scassi, Valentino, and Pierre Cardin is also on display. Of course one of our favorite parts of the entire exhibition is the vintage accessories! If you have a chance to visit if you are in Palm Beach, be sure to check out the select House of Lavande pieces that are featured!
