1. Duncan Quinn's Cask Chronicles double-decker bus has rolled into the Miami Design District bringing cocktail events and a bespoke men's pop-up shop. RSVP: caskchronicles@duncanquinn.com 

Sid Vicious, John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten), and Patti Smith as fashion icons? Sid might be rolling over in his grave. As announced yesterday by Thomas Campbell and Andrew Bolton, "The Met's spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, will examine punk's impact on high fashion from the movement's birth in the early 1970s through its continuing influence today."

Let's take a stroll down one of the most fashionable memory lanes in history. It's called IMPACT: CFDA at 50 and highlights the best American designers of the last 50 years. First hosted at FIT last year, the exhibit has made its why south and is spending winter in Boca, the Boca Musuem of Art to be exact. You can purchase tickets online. "Each living designer selected to participate in the exhibition has chosen a single object or ensemble that best represents his or her impact on the fashion world." Designers included in the exhibition are Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Norma Kamali, Francisco Costa / Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, and Diane von Furstenberg. This exhibit runs through April 21rst. 

Duncan Quinn shall shortly be making a return to the Design District. This time Mr. Quinn returns aboard a double decker bus turned tailor shop, boutique, and exclusive party spot. The three week Miami visit is part of his coast-to-coast tour going from NY to LA, affectoinately dubbed the Cask Chronicles.
