This year’s theme has been announced as “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” a riff on Susan Sontag‘s essay “Notes on Camp.”

About the theme, Alessandro Michelle, creative director of Gucci, told the New York Times:

“Camp really means the unique ability to combine high art and pop culture; it is not kitsch. The Met exhibition will give contemporary significance to Sontag’s perspective.”
