We’re Space Bound

Get ready for a space odyssey.

Pop cul­ture loves look­ing into the next fron­tier, and so does fash­ion. From The

Jet­sons to the new Star Wars movies, we’re ob­sessed with space. Per­haps be­cause of its for­eign­ness, we’re able to project what­ever vi­sion we have for an in­ter­ga­lac­tic fu­ture onto a blank space (pun in­tended). And with new ecosystems come a whole new way of liv­ing and, yes, dress­ing. Think shiny space blan­ket-in­spired dresses, min­i­mal­is­tic cuts and pro­tec­tive gear fash­ioned into clothes that might not seem strange light years from now. While life on Mars seems pos­si­ble in the near fu­ture (NASA pre­dicts we’ll land there by 2030), for now, we’ll set­tle with 2017’s in­ter­pre­ta­tion of fu­tur­is­tic wear.
