Sci-Fi F/W 08.09
A trend that has been going on for a few seasons now but that is coming back full force in really wearable dramatic clothing. From the sculpture trend, to the metallic, to the high gloss leather to severely strict cuts and lines to the out of this world jewelry.

I love this trend...especially with Balenciaga, when they incorporate the classic silhouettes...

The metallic Rick Owens jacket is simply gorgeous..... Great post Spike.

Now the question is... ...how do you translate this into your everyday wardrobe?

I think taking the essence of it, a bit of shine, monochrome color, sharp lines and architectural silhouettes, can really work for every day.

Jil Sander probably does it in the least threatening way, that folded collar jacket and trouser look can be worn as is for someone who likes a bit of drama in their wardrobe. Same with that first Balenciaga look, with different hair and makeup and if you edit out that metallic portion at the hips, you're left with an abstract draped top and chic cigarette pants....perfect for evening I think.

I'm so all about Sci-fi. Screw wearability I'd combine most of those clothes in my wardrobe as is. One of my favorite's was YSL.

I adore the Louis Vuitton pictures, particularly the last two (though, perhaps, for their artistic merit rather than wearability). I think the LV coat could work for the every day if it was teamed with something equally striking/smart, and maybe boots of the same shade.
