The Museum at FIT’s latest fashion exhibition, Expedition: Fashion from the Extreme, opens to the public on Friday, September 15th. In anticipation of the occasion, we invite you to enjoy four short trailers that are related to each of the key ‘inhospitable environments’ featured in the exhibition — the deep sea, the Arctic, outer space, and the peaks of the highest mountains.
Each video features an object on view in the exhibition.
- The ‘Deep Sea’ Trailer features an Alexander McQueen dress from spring/summer 2010 inspired by bioluminescent underwater creatures.
- The ‘Arctic’ Trailer focuses on a hooded ensemble by Yohji Yamamoto, fall 2000.
- The ‘Space’ Trailer travels across the black and white surface of a dress by Michel Goma for Patou.
- A fall/winter 2014 puffer coat by Junya Watanabe emphasizes protection from cold and winds in the ‘Mountaineering’ Trailer.
Expedition: Fashion from the Extreme runs through January 6, 2018 at The Museum at FIT in NYC.
