At Coachella back in April, rapper Tupac Shakur was brought back to life, in the form of a hologram, to perform on stage with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. The impressive technological feat not only ushered in a trend in music (the estates of Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix are reportedly now working on similar holographic performances), but also in art (an exhibition featuring holographic works by the likes of Chuck Close and Ed Ruscha opens at NYC’s New Museum July 18). Fashion is getting in on the action, too.
We’ve spotted holographic accessories everywhere this Resort season, from Proenza Schouler to Narciso Rodriguez to Stuart Weitzman. Jewelry designer Eddie Borgo is on board as well, working with the special treatment in shades of blue and pink. His first-ever handbag is also holographic. It can be worn across the body, as a clutch, or as a fanny pack, and you can even remove the straps and wear them as a necklace.
