It’s going to be one surreal summer.

This May, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute will unveil a fashionista’s dream come true exhibit:  “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.”

The exhibit is scheduled to run from May 10–August 19, and we can’t wait to feast our eyes on the fashion. From sari dresses to bug-infested garments, both Schiaparelli and Prada seem to have a lot in common, and the exhibit is dedicated to exploring how two different artists, a half century apart, could be so commonly inspired. According to Vogue, co-curator Andrew Bolton describes Prada and Schiaparelli as using “fashion as a vehicle to provoke, to confront normative conventions of taste, beauty, glamour, and femininity.”

From 1930 to now, this exhibit is the must see of the summer.
