X-Raying Fashion

YouTube caption:


Spanning five centuries, the V&A's Fashion collection is the largest and most comprehensive in the world, containing thousands of objects full of fascinating details — many not visible to the naked eye.

Since 2016, we've collaborated with artist Nick Veasey, a specialist in the field of X-ray photography, to unlock some of the secrets of this collection through the illuminating mode of X-ray.

Nick custom-built a mobile X-ray studio, enabling us to capture high-quality X-ray studies of key objects — including a pair of 18th-century English stays, a denim jacket customized by Leigh Bowery, and several couture garments designed by Cristóbal Balenciaga.

Fight back against stress with the Desktop Punching Bag.

A heavy-duty spring and a large, immensely-strong suction cup ensure the inflatable bag can handle both speed work and big-hitting haymakers.

Punch it as hard as you want — the suction cup won't move.

Handles an insane amount of abuse.
