SS18's space age trend will take your look to another dimension


Discover our top picks for taking your look to another dimension...




Fashion has always been transportive, and this season we’re taking a trip all the way to outer space  – cue an intergalactic palette of metallics, high-shine fabrics and solar system prints.


So brace yourself (and prepare for lift-off) as we share our top picks for mastering style’s final frontier

J.W. Anderson Pierce tote

Space-age silver is the colour of the season, lighting up the runway everywhere from Christopher Kane to Paco Rabanne. And your favourite hero pieces have been reinvented in metallic too – namely Dorateymur’s cute pumps and Loewe’s Elephant bag. But we really love this futuristic take on J.W.Anderson’s signature Pierce tote. Now, the best look for showcasing your sci-fi accessory? A pair of mom jeans and ruffled white shirt.

Paula Knorr Metallic Dress

AW17 has a distinctly futuristic feel, and the search for something out of the ordinary (in fact, out of this world) is at the fore. Enter Paula Knorr’s metallic dress, with its unearthly silhouette resplendent in bronze. Wear it and achieve that goddess from a far-away galaxy feeling (just keep accessories to a minimum).

Saint Laurent Crystal Slouch Boots

Gone are the days where a simple stiletto or kitten heel would suffice as fashion-forward footwear. Now it’s all about gravity-defying or ‘heel-less’ shoes, technological designs and avant-garde styling. So head to the always boundary-breaking Saint Laurent, and look to either the logo Opyum 110 pump or Niki 105 boot as your first port of call.

Dolce & Gabbana Space Print Dress

Yes we’re falling hard for Dolce & Gabbana’s set of space prints; an amalgamation of robot, rocket and galaxy prints emblazoned onto just about everything, especially since splashed amid those sci-fi prints are the ornate and ultra-feminine flowers the label does like nobody else. It all comes together for an unusual but highly wearable end result; simply add a pair of sneakers by day, and sock boots by night to finish the look.

Chanel Vintage Scoop Neck Vest

Nowhere is fashion’s new futuristic fascination more literal than Chanel’s giant space station (aka their AW17 runway) where models in quilted, metallic space blankets and glittery knee boots play witness to a life-size rocket launch and (quite literally) explosive finale. Channel the drama by sporting this Chanel vintage iridescent silver vest under ladylike heritage tweed and a quilted bag.

Moschino space Cropped Sweater

Jeremy Scott is a renowned rulebreaker, and his latest wares are no exception; Moschino is looking to 60s sci-fi classic Barbarella for inspiration, with shooting rockets, cosmic space patterns and giant space ships splashed onto sweaters, dresses and jumpsuits. For a chic but sporty take, some slouchy Joseph joggers and low tops are all you need.

MSGM Metallic Puffa Jacket

The most in demand cover-up of the moment, the puffa jacket is fast becoming a wardrobe staple for the modern woman. With the addition of a metallic sheen, this MSGM puff piece guarantees maximum impact. Wear oversized earrings to channel your inner 60s space mod, finishing the look with flared black trousers and favourite trainers.

Saint Laurent Mini Dress

For those with a hint of scepticism on an all-out space-race takeover, Saint Laurent’s asymmetric dress might just change your mind. A move away from last season’s bold hues and dappled printing, this silky, monochrome dress balances luxury with just a hint of mind-bending flair. Note: wear with a strappy stiletto and velvet choker for party season.
