Space Case

Futuristic fashion was all the rage as designers like Paco Rabanne and André Courrèges matched the attraction of the space exploration boom with their pieces. These pieces that emerged as a result of this late 1960s space race made for an out-of-this-world combination of mod meets intergalactic. From sequins, metallic hues and larger than life vinyl accessories to geometric and striped patterns covering structured silhouettes, everybody who was anybody made sure to sport this statement making high-fashion attire, including Audrey Hepburn who famously wore a Courrèges piece in the opening sequence of How to Steal a Million. Space age fashion continued to make its mark on screen with its debut in the film Barbarella, where a young Jane Fonda plays a planet hopping woman of the future who wears Rabanne’s designs of silver collared suits that shine as bright as the stars in the sky. Her character roams space in her stellar outfits that hold true to everything that is space age fashion, proving that futuristic fashion never looked so good.
