The changing pace of fashion never ceases to amaze me; especially when it comes to the present day’s space age looks that appear to be taken right out of a sci-fi thriller.
In today’s technology-driven culture, it is foreseeable that science would inevitably marry style to deliver fashion that is out of this world. As showcased on www.style.com, top contemporary high fashion designers on the galactic roster as of late include Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh and Hussein Chayalan, who have all been consistently turning out futuristic couture at the speed of light.
The current space opera that has taken off in the fashion industry is made unmistakable by exaggerated, pointed, caged and cocooned silhouettes, metallic fabrics and finishes, bold robotic hardware and circuitry embellishments. However bizarre and abstract, fear not because as proven throughout fashion history the space age look can be transformed for daily wear. Try swapping out metal helmets and fashioned armor for iridescent jackets, architectural shoes, metallic tops and bottoms, and bold statement jewelry when introducing extraterrestrial elements into your wardrobe.
Overall, the key to pulling off futuristic space wear is the same as with any other new style trend; be bold, fearless, and step out of your comfort zone. So shine bright like a diamond in futuristic fashion this fall, the possibilities are endless so let your imagination run wild!
