Arthur M. Sackler Gallery 

"The first international exhibition devoted to sumptuous and 
graphically stunning imperial Turkish robes (kaftans) from the 16th 
and 17th century—the embodiment of the maxim that "clothes make the 
man"—will be on view at the Sackler Gallery this fall and 
winter. "Style and Status: Imperial Costumes from Ottoman Turkey" 
presents robes that dazzle with their audacious play of colors, bold 
designs, and rich finish."
