This retrospective documentary marks 50 years since Neil Armstrong uttered those famous words on the surface of the Moon: “Does my head look big in this?” The NASA Moon landings and the space race that led to them are not usually remembered for their contribution to fashion, but closer inspection reveals that Apollo 11’s adventure to the Moon and back was far more than just a technological miracle. The iconography of the early Space Age has seeped into all aspects of culture, and fashion is no exception.
From NASA denim jackets to cyberpunk rave costumes, space has been one of the fashion world’s recurrent motifs ever since man first set foot on the Moon. This extraordinary documentary gives viewers a glimpse back in time to where all that began. An enthralling celebration of an incredible moment in history. Come for the spacesuits, stay for the adventure.
