Description:
Sporting a tin front and back cover, this catalog for the Metropolitan Museum’s 2008 exhibition Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy has the look and feel of an armored chest plate or 70s era lunch box. Abbott Miller’s playful design perfectly suits his subject, a colorful look at the influence of superhero costumes on high fashion, street styles, military uniforms, and high-tech sportswear. Featured designers include Hussein Chalayan, Alexander McQueen, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Comme des Garçons. Author Michael Chabon contributes a humorous introduction Secret Skin: An Essay in Unitard Theory.
