Is the future here in fashion? Or has it always been here?
It’s funny how futuristic fashion is always portrayed– either metallic and shiny, or post-apocalyptic grunge. While both styles have their merit, how realistic are either? Will we ever wear either?
Between this editorial (that I originally saw at Alix Rose) and the new Scissor Sisters’ video, it seems that metallic is the way to go in our ever-present future. My playful, impractical, theatrical side is singing to me, calling for armored knee pads, sky-high metallic platforms (am I channeling Jennine again?), prismatic facial decorations, luminescent skin, and chains around my body.
