Suiting Ourselves

Abstract:
Even the most wired scholars today appreciate tradition. The renovated, century-old Beaux-Arts Carrere and Hastings building housing the library exhibition is more popular than ever with researchers, with its spacious and well-lit reading rooms in which the magnificent original tables have been discreetly rewired for laptop connections.

So, too, fashion resists technological advances. Our hottest high-tech innovation, nanotechnology, is found in apparel mainly as an invisible protective coating for traditional materials. Luxury itself is disguised; platinum watches resemble stainless steel to all but a few cognoscenti.
