While the festivities surrounding the 2017 Met Gala might have ended, the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s latest Costume Insitute exhibition is set to be opened to the public on May 4. Entitled “Rei Kawakubo/COMME des GARÇONS: Art of the In-Between,” this year’s show pays tribute to the Japanese fashion powerhouse and her revolutionary designs throughout the years, spanning from her archival collections from the 1980s to some of her most recent creations.

Divided into different binary themes, including “Absence/Presence,” “Fashion/Antifashion,” “High/Low” and “Object/Subject,” the exhibit showcases a total of 140 iconic designs by Kawakubo. In particular, visitors can expect to see pieces from the 1997 “Lumps and Bumps” show, knits from the 1982 fall presentation, dresses from the 2012 “2-Dimensions” collection and more — all displayed in a minimalist space. Take a tour inside the exhibition by scrolling through the gallery above.

“Rei Kawakubo/COMME des GARÇONS: Art of the In-Between” will run from May 4 through September 4. For more information, check out the Met’s website.
