Arcimboldo Redux

We've adored the paintings of Giuseppe Arcimboldo ever since we first saw them; at first glance, layers of fruits, vegetables, the rogue fluke...and then...a portrait of a man.  A surrealist take on the man vs. feast. 

Which explains why we were so delighted to see the Salad Days feature in the New York Times Magazine curated in anticipation of the "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations" show at the Met.  "Dresses" featured alongside some of our favorite designers - made out of an abundance of fresh ingredients:

Veggie Couture - Dolce & Gabbana

Pasta Party - Donna Karan
Catch of the Day: Armani
Shrimp Cocktail - McQueen

Pour Some Sugar on Me - Pucci and Viktor & Rolf
