Today - from haute couture to ready-to-wear - parkas, puffer coats and backpacks, as well as garments made of neoprene and Mylar are everywhere. But the roots of these ubiquitous items of dress and cutting-edge textiles are rarely acknowledged or understood. Inspired by the so-called `heroic era' of polar navigation (1890-1922), extreme mountain climbing, deep sea exploration, and journeys to outer space, Expedition explores how garments made for the most inhospitable environments on earth and beyond have inspired more than sixty years of fantastical, otherworldly fashions. Lavishly illustrated throughout, it features about 150 images, including high fashion magazine editorials by Irving Penn, Richard Avedon and others; museum objects from the permanent collections of The Museum at FIT and the American Museum of Natural History; and unpublished photographs of early expeditions in the archives of the Explorer's Club in New York.
