Things move pretty fast in fashion: Even in the midst of New York fashion week, we're always looking ahead. New details have emerged about Metropolitan Museum of Art's upcoming annual Costume Institute exhibit, which, opening May 9, is already just around the corner.

The theme this year is "PUNK: Chaos to Couture." The exhibit will feature approximately 100 original vintage garments from the 1970s punk movement, juxtaposed with the designer counterparts they inspired.

Though the theme was released back in September (along with the co-chairs of the Met Ball Gala: Rooney Mara, Lauren Santo Domingo, Riccardo Tisci, and Anna Wintour), the Met just released photos and a video giving us a little more info on what we can expect to see later this spring.
