While I'm glad that he is finally being remembered, I'm upset that such a genius had to be forgotten in the first place while others quoted him left and right . And THIS is what should immediately come to mind with regards to a futuristic/space theme...none of the recent collections even come close to having a vision as singular and unforgettable as his.
Anyway, thanks for this thread, and that is an AMAZING leather jacket jennifer!
Agreed! And I think what you said now is even more relevant with Lady Gaga and Haus of Gaga re-creating some of his designs as well as Hussein Chalayan's Spring 2007 Bubble dress and gaining all the credit. I think Fashion is too...liberal with the "Futuristic" label, because looking back on his designs from 1970-the 1990s. THAT was futurism. Everyone else is just replicating what he did, when it's already been done.
