SPACE RACE

The athletic trend just went in­ter­ga­lac­tic. All aboard the rock­et­ship to sar­to­rial Mars

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

French houses Cour­règes, Mu­gler and Paco Ra­banne have all un­der­gone re­vivals in re­cent years and in the process they’ve been given an athletic, mod­ern spin. This sea­son a space-age aes­thetic dom­i­nates their su­per-cool French take on sports chic: neo­prene zip-up suits at Cour­règes, shiny chain mail, clear PVC co­coon coats and sporty pip­ing on body-hug­ging styles at Mu­gler, and scuba-style white bal­a­clavas and fu­tur­is­tic white hooded anoraks at Paco Ra­banne. There’s noth­ing sepia-tinted hippy or awk­ward-geek-in-cords-and­flo­rals about it. This is the anti-70s move­ment. The look is norm­core meets sports­wear. It’s a Day­breaker disco... on Jupiter. It’s sub­lime.
