GET FUTURISTIC SHADES presents: A-MORIR (futuristic fashion designer)

A-Morir, the eyewear and accessories collection by Kerin.Rose, has become a much publicized favorite among fashion’s biggest trendsetters. Her designs have been commissioned and loved most notably by Rihanna, Lady GaGa, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, Snoop Dogg, Fergie, Nicki Minaj, Estelle, Cassie, Jazmine Sullivan, and Kid Sister; and have been featured in multiple editorials in Vogue Italia, Rolling Stone, Vibe, and international versions of Marie Claire and Nylon, among hundreds of mentions and shoutouts in print, TV, and on the web.

Though Mariah Carey first wore the “Bizet” glasses in her video for “My Love,” Kerin.Rose burst into the spotlight when Rihanna hand-selected and showed off her “Barracuda” glasses in the video for “Run This Town” with Jay-Z and Kanye West, in her landmark Vogue Italia cover shoot, and for the inaugural Fashion’s Night Out in New York City. She has since designed a special collection of eyewear and accessories for designer Christian Siriano’s Fall/Winter 2010 collection shown at New York Fashion Week at Bryant Park, and was picked as a “best in class” honoree by Nike at their annual design conference.

Founded in 2008, A-Morir by Kerin.Rose always has necks snapping and jaws dropping. Each meticulous creation adorned in Swarovski crystals, spikes, chains, lace, studs or pearls reflects Kerin’s love of the theatrical, the luxurious, and most importantly, the glam. From her beginnings at Patricia Field to her current sales on Karmaloop and in boutiques around the world, each item is hand made with premium materials and always with the discerning tastemaker in mind.

You probably recognize the design of young Central Saint Martin’s 09 graduate Ara Jo. Selected for the CSM’s 2009 Graduate Press Show, her ‘Hypnosis‘ collection gained the attention from the press as well as celebrity fashion stylist Nicola Formichetti, who dressed Lady Gaga with Ara’s Jumpsuit last September in Toronto

futuristic classico: BALENCIAGA 2007

Balenciaga has transformed their runway models into Cyber-Goddesses with their new futuristic, Sci-Fi reminiscent collection. These hot, she-droids rock the runway with sultry safety goggles, elongated and sleek black jackets, dresses jigsawed from patent leather; & space crew shirts with wide shoulders and high white collars.

Looking at the collection, my head swarms with images from futuristic flicks such as Terminator, The Matrix, Mad Max, Tron and even Star Wars. For the most part, I love this collection; it is sleek, chic and fabulously futuristic. Nicolas Ghesquiere is a God of a designer and I applaud him for bringing his vision to light.

Trend: Futuristic Clothing Fashion (by Men’s Flair)

Before you start imagining rather wild clothing, futuristic fashion doesn’t have to be so far out. Modern lines and daring new looks can all contribute to futuristic clothes trends. Bright, day-glo colors, new and interesting fabrics, and innovative cuts all have a touch of high modern style.

We’ll find futuristic fashion in asymmetric designs and details, new and interesting fabrics, and unusual touches. Cutting-edge fashion from Japanese and French designers is often in the forefront of somewhat unisex, unique pieces. Modern fabrics and even a touch of space age have been found in this season’s futuristic clothes at Hussein Chalayan’s most recent show. We saw a simple palette of black, white, gray, and a smattering of pastels, but there were plenty of futuristic details to go around. Chalayan added latex strips into the sleeves of his t-shirt and as trim in his trench coat, revealing yet another take on the basics.

Meanwhile, Thom Browne’s trench coats also incorporated a little futuristic styling. Using a classic design, his coats had a completely new feel. Browne used a modern, shrunken silhouette in a brilliant white overcoat with bright red piping for a stunning effect.

Sometimes color alone can give us a futuristic feel to an outfit, which is something Yohji Yamamoto certainly mastered for Y-3. Workout wear was given a serious upgrade with inventive closures and new shapes and combinations. Zippers were found on jackets like a cutaway coat. Yamamoto used bright orange and stark white to give a punchy jumpsuit feel to his runway show. Track suits were matched with cutaway jackets for a look with just a hint of Clockwork Orange appeal. Modern Japanese samurai-esque shapes were the epitome of futuristic clothes. The most wildly modern was found at the end of the show—the icing on the futuristic cake—when several avant-garde stretchy latex no-sleeve tubes were paraded down the catwalk.

On the feet, futuristic clothes include Alessandro Dell’Aqua’s shiny silver high-tops, which was paired with an ’80s glam rock look. Futuristic accessories blend well with a retro wardrobe—details are highlighted and they become a perfect conversation-worthy piece. Cloak’s collection used booty-like shoes—almost like classic moon boots—to add to the avant-garde effect of their gunmetal gray jackets and striped silvery waistcoats.

Futuristic clothes lend an interesting effect to all of our retro and vintage inspired classic looks. Shiny fabrics and interesting shapes make cool contrasts to the refined and slimmed-down looks we’re already wearing. With futuristic fashion, we are giving our wardrobes a truly new touch that hasn’t quite been done before.

Futuristic fashion for high-tech fashionistas (by Style Guru)

intro

The term fashion these days is not only related to the designers but with the scientists also. Yes, the scientists are putting in great efforts in designing our apparel and accessories. We are going a step further i.e. the styles we are implementing in our fashion these days are a thought of some fashion forward designer cum scientist from the past decade. Likewise there are some people who still think on the same line which means that ages later we will all be hi-tech with our fashion statements. The researches are going on with a bang and I hope that in sometime we will see a new expression in our outfits and accessories. Below is a list of certain designs that are a step towards the futuristic fashion. Continue reading

Futuristic Fashion Forward (by Digital Trends)

Let’s face it, most of us have similar notions of how the future of travel or home life might look – flying cars, compartmentalized Jetson-inspired high-rises, and artificial intelligence robots doing our mundane, everyday tasks.  But have you ever stopped to think about what futuristic clothing might look like, aside from the Star Trek skin-tight space suits and bizarre headdresses showcased in Star Wars?

Inspired partly by the futuristic creations from Bravo Network’s clothing designer reality show, “Project Runway”, two MIT graduate students, Christine Liu and Nick Knouf, along with the MIT Media Lab and MIT Council of the Arts, recently produced “Seamless: Computational Couture”, an out-of-this-world fashion show held at the MIT Media Lab. Seamless’ at-capacity show featured 30 high-tech pieces from 18 talented current and former students from MIT, Harvard University, the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence and Parsons School of Design in New York City.

According to Liu, “The real inspiration was just the interest in clothing and technology and Nick and I shared when we met. We watched ‘Project Runway’, attended Boston fashion shows, shopped together (naturally) and researched (and marveled at) existing and emerging computational clothing projects. Pretty soon we got the gumption to apply for the Arts Grant at MIT to produce the show.”  The Arts Grant from the MIT Council of Arts awarded Liu and Knouf $1000 to work with, and MIT’s Media Lab matched it. All other items were paid out-of-pocket, or offered in-kind, including shoes donated by Puma as well as some concept pieces from Motorola.

In contrast to the Media Lab’s 1997 Wearables fashion show, this year’s event brought social implications into the limelight, offering a combination of function and form along with a dash of panache. “Seamless was an independent grassroots student production with independent and student designers. Seamless was a different take on clothing and technology, focusing more on the social and sartorial aspects of computational clothing rather than just purely informationally augmented selves.  We also wanted to explore more artistic, conceptual and experimental pieces,” said Liu.
