It's A Mod, Mod World! Enter This Instagram Contest & Party In Palm Springs

palm-springs-modernism
We know everyone's on the edge of their seats awaiting all of the Coachella pussyfooting to climax with a final lineup (enough with the rumors already!). However, this Palm Springs announcement calls for an entirely different wardrobe and boasts an event roster so rad that you may want to plan a pregame road trip just to scout the festival's neighboring grounds. Beginning on Valentine's Day, the city's hosting its annual Modernism Week, honoring all of the architecture and design feats the midcentury mecca boasts. Costumes are strongly encouraged (happen to have any Courrèges or Quant just laying around?), cocktails at the Sinatra estate will be served poolside, a replica of Warhol's Factory will rear its wacky head, and even Moby will be on hand chatting with a design icon!
