Trend Report: Sci-Fi Fashion

Some designers fantasize about traveling back in time; others seek out future worlds. It’s no secret that Nicolas Ghesquière, for example, is a sci-fi fan: which is seen in his collections for Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga. “I was thinking of robotic articulation. Car parts. Droids. A boyish silhouette . . .” the designer said when explaining his Spring 2007 show for the latter. The Matrix inspired a Dior Haute Couture show presented in Versailles in 1999, and in 1968, space-age designer Paco Rabanne, whose career in fashion started with jewelry design, was tapped to dress Jane Fonda in out-of-this world getups.

The Sci-Fi fashion goes way back to the early 90’s where designers like Thierry Mugler and others brought out collections inspired by the outside world. We have here the designers in chronological order who have been inspired by the world of aliens and all things superficial.

Lastly, Gucci recently came out with their version of Sci-Fi Fashion in this beaming Autumn/Winter 2017 campaign inspired by the 60’s. We love how it has both elements of the past as well as the future. Will we buy these off the shelves? Probably, cause why not?! 😉
