Futurism: The Hottest Trend During Fashion Week

While this spring is full of innovative trends that never cease to amaze, one that cannot go unnoticed is the futuristic trend. Whenever the state of the world becomes hopeless, designers often look to the future for inspiration and who can blame them? Futuristic-inspired references have been scattered across the runways for numerous seasons now, but this time it has become more tangible than ever before.

The collections are filled with proposals full of metallic, plastic, or vinyl textures, in alternative cuts, as well as deconstructed over-sized layers making many designs stand out. The use of these materials was in part of Fenty, with models wearing nothing but chic streetwear with a futuristic twist; meanwhile, Paradox Tokyo takes you through a journey to the Japan of the future (a not too distant one) with clean textile combinations in minimalist designs, characteristic of the country.

Other designers are never far behind, and they have aerodynamic accessories to prove it, with pieces that remind us of “Back To The Future”. There is also the use of a color palette of iridescent space grays, silver, and moon-rock-inspired sparkling adornments.

Some models walked wearing astronaut print dresses, Mylar-style quilted blankets, and glitter boots that were perfect for taking a stroll in 2049. There were also slinky silver numbers, asymmetric skirts, and thick-soled masculine flats.

The best example is Bella Hadid on the catwalk for Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture 18, with a design worthy of the royalty of the future, taking her outfit to another level.

Now, you don’t have to look like an extra in a “Star Wars” movie, since the idea is to bring the future to the present. Experiment with athleisure, pants with flare or jeans, completing the look with a textured piece and futuristic accessories, such as aerodynamic lenses.

Want to look just like the stars? Then it’s time to give your wardrobe a makeover with some high-shine metallics. One of the easiest ways to embrace this trend is with a great handbag, so forget about your trusty black carryall in favor of something more silver; but try not go overboard on shine as this has the risk of looking cheap.

If you balance the glitz and the glamour, you can create a perfect look with a simple item such as a silver mini cross-body bag. Another option is to embrace this trend is with your shoes. Everything from trainers and disco-ready flats to skyscraper stilettos are available in futuristic-inspired colors.

Adapt this trend to your style, whether romantic or minimal. If you are still not convinced, invest in an accessory or garment, since it will look just as cool and be less of a fashion risk on your closet and your wallet.
