Over the weekend I experienced an inspirational visit to The Cloisters, a museum located in Fort Tyron Park, New York City. The building, which is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was reconstructed in the 1930s from the architectural elements of European medieval abbeys. It is fashioned to exhibit art and architecture from Medieval Europe. It is a good half hour train ride from midtown, but it’s definitely worth the trip! From the stone archways to the fertile gardens, The Cloisters is basically a visual Gregorian chant from start to finish with Flemish paintings, unicorn tapestries, vaulted ceilings and clerestory windows.
In a tribute to the colors and textures visually captivating at The Cloistures, I thought it would be fun to reflect my impressions through a woman’s designer ready-to-wear inspiration board, featuring a VERRIER look from my most recent Spring 2011 collection complimented with accessories by additional designers (above).
Below are some pictures taken during my visit attempting to share my visions.
