The Look is a narrative in eighteen scenes about youth, aging, timelessness, and identity. It is set in an ambiguous time. Dispersed throughout are ten accessories that comprise the 2013 capsule collection. These selections from runway couture and ready-to-wear collections are “assisted” classics, so highly mannered that they live in a state of the past-present. The Glass House is a key protagonist.
