After a few questionable themes, do you remember the year of punk? The Met Gala 2016 displayed a high-tech vibe for this year’s exhibition, ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’, and if I’m honest it produced more misses than hits as designers fell a little short when they were thinking fashion and technology, which doesn’t just mean robots and space-age, so as you can probably guess there was a lot of silver.
