A stellar influence
It seems that outer space and the vastness of the universe are becoming an inspiration for designers this year. N.A.S.A. inspired materials and galactic prints have been making an appearance on several runways, mostly as statement pieces with visually strong patterns and fabrics.
The latter are the foundation of this futuristic look: high tech fabrics in silvery and greyish tones, with special treatments and finishing to give them that extra edge and space vibe. Although the global aesthetic is, at the very least, unusual, I’m excited to see the results of incorporating these items into more traditional attires. On this note, Sir Paul Smith has once again outdone himself…here are some of his looks for the year.
