The world is now very familiar with the idea that “summer is over”

When summer started, the entire world settled into a deep snooze. Although summer was just two months away, some devoted observers scoffed at the idea of “great heights.” This attitude continued right through the season.

But it was life, and life doesn’t always work out the way you expect. This reality came crashing down upon editors, stylists, retailers, and magazine editors who trekked along the streets of the city as part of the month-long “Summer Is Dead: Fashion’s Road to Hell” exhibition at The New Museum (June 6–July 13, 2019). Throughout the exhibition, modeled by editors in a variety of various backgrounds (fashion, design, media, media and more), these participants all recalled the time the sun set behind the moon and gray clouds started to roll in across the sky.

About the exhibition

The show is about one thing — everyone at some point has understood that they will have to cut way down on those summery outfits. Everyone will say that they will cut all of those summery outfits. Everyone will say that summer’s days of accessibility (one size fits all) are gone forever, and we will have to adopt a more tailored and smarter approach to fashion. Of course this is not entirely true. Sure, we’ll all have to cut back on all those Instagrammable, Day-Glo outfits, but some of us will be really compelled to squeeze back into those throwback-style clothing trends. The show, hosted by Jennés Lifschitz, brings together images from 2014’s “Summer Is Over: Why My Spring Was Every Day of the Year,” a photo essay featuring editors and street-style photographers in New York City. The photos they took appear in several publications, including magazine editions of Vogue, W, Vanity Fair, GQ, and Elle.
