  • Description

    Fashion news with a difference - the accent on space, and the moon in particular. What the well-dressed space man will be wearing was shown to the Press at California, USA, Feb 20 ... providing, of course, that man goes to the moon.

    The model had to climb into his suit as it was so bulky. It contained food, drink and oxygen; and it is believed the suit would enable him to live for up to ten days on the moon. He resembled a light-house with inflated arms and legs. The largely-glass helmet gave him a clear view, and contained a head-rest for comfort during horizontal flight.

    It has its own control panel, and also a walkie-talkie-type radio system for communication with the outside world. When they invent space clothes for women, however, furniture makers will no doubt do good business making giant-size wardrobes to take all the latest space ensembles.
