Shop The Look: Holographic

-------

Fashion is shifting into another dimension—and it’s a holographic one. Following Burberry Prorsum’s hologram runway show in Beijing last April, we noticed some of our favorite designers turning out Space Age ready-to-wear and accessories that really attract the eye. Blumarine’s iridescent Fall 2012 collection and Proenza Schouler’s revamped PS11 bag come to mind. Stella McCartney also dabbled in futuristic finishes, using them on clutches, sandals, and tech cases. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite pieces from Eddie Borgo, Chalayan, and more.

1. Blumarine jacket, $1,195, available at www.thecorner.com

2. Eddie Borgo wrap bracelet, $350, available at www.bergdorfgoodman.com

3. Chalayan leggings, $807.01, available at www.farfetch.com

4. Proenza Schouler PS11 mini classic, $1,875, available at www.lagarconne.com

Tie-Dye: Tired Or To Die For?

-------

Are the eighties over as a source of fashion inspiration? Tommy Ton’s recent street-style photos seem to indicate a move toward easier seventies styles, and we found further evidence of the trend in the tie-dyed looks that brightened the Spring runways. “There’s something about tie-dye that speaks to everyone,” says Tory Burch, adding, “it’s a little nostalgic but also feels modern.” If Blumarine‘s caftan belongs cheerfully in the former camp, Proenza Schouler‘s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough gave the dyeing technique new life by applying it to sleek and of-the-moment active-sports styles. Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, meanwhile, pieced together ragged, postapocalyptic looks using fabric usually associated with long-haired flower children. Are you ready for the re-dawning of the Age of Aquarius?
