Must say it's a bit of a bummer:
From the rocket launch at the Fall/Winter 2017 show to the ad campaign, the space theme was carried through only in prints on sweatshirts...more wearable than the rocket ship, but still.
Probably a smart marketing decision, knowing their audience. But still...
In the recent presentation on fashion and aerospace from last week, I used these examples from Flight to Mars and Star Trek to show some of the imaginative (and slightly ridiculous) ways we've envisioned our future gear in space.
This video from Gucci is such a fun example of how fashion can play with these ideas – using real clothes – but through storytelling, styling, and some very low-tech special effects they transport us. Enjoy!

For any Chicagoans who missed our July 20 event, or anyone else curious about what we talked about: enjoy!
Thanks to everyone who came out to hear the presentation and panel discussion and ask your great questions. It was a thrilling evening, with new ideas and wild examples coming from all directions. ( Read about it here.) Looking forward to the upcoming events, that promise to expand on this discussion through different lenses of professional and personal experience. Each city has a unique culture, and heritage, and our goal is to reflect that through the panel members and the conversation.
Up next: Boston!
Save the date: November 2, 2017 at the Boston Design Center.
Until then, keep exploring!
