Fashion Off the 405, Weekender Edition

We look good on the weekends—thanks to you, our stylish visitors

Weekends at the Getty are all about family, friends, and fun. Some travel from afar, checking the Getty Center off their “Things to Do in LA” lists, and locals drop by for a weekend staycation.

This past weekend, at the last Garden Concert of our summer series for kids, the sun was shining brightly and the Central Gardens seemed especially vibrant. The landscape was absolutely picturesque, as were our weekend visitors.

These weekenders were dressed head-to-toe in happiness, accessorized with smiles and laughs. Check out some of my favorite moments and looks that embody that feeling of weekend wanderlust.

      Color for Healing

      This sanitorium (tuberculosis hospital) in Paimio, Finland, was designed by architect Alvar Aalto in the 1920s. Unlike many hospitals, it was full of bright colors—including welcoming yellow on the main stairs and calming green for ceilings above bedridden patients. Aalto even created special chairs to open the chest and speed healing.

      The building’s colors were mostly whitewashed later in the 20th century, but now—due to a grant from the Getty Foundation as part of its Keeping It Modern initiative—its colors are being reconstructed and the building preserved for the future.
