Summary
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
