The NY Metropolitan Museum is currently hosting a special exhibit called Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy, made possible by none other than Giorgio Armani. This exhibit explores the influence that the superhero genre has had on the fashion industry. “Featuring movie costumes, avant-garde haute couture, and high-performance sportswear, it reveals how the superhero serves as the ultimate metaphor for fashion and its ability to empower and transform the human body”. We invite everyone in the NY Metro area to view this well done, and surprisingly, educational exhibit.
So, in honor of The Met’s fashionable tribute to superheroes we’ve decided to post this photo. See, even the Incredible Hulk has ditched the billowy purple pants for a pair of body-flattering 5 pockets.
