Space Odyssey Fall 2009

designs from Andre Courreges

The cosmic utopian vision of the 60’s space age designers spoke to the sudden affirmation of the potential of humanity, the realization of sending a man into outer space, that the stars are within our grasp. Designers like Courreges, Cardin, and Rabanne codified this world of tomorrow with structured minimalist couture, clothes that removed the references of our earthly experiences, added a protective element, and assured a medieval simplicity of life.

For fall 2009, in the wake of a recession and a reassessment of values, designers echoed the optimism and sparseness of those old masters, trading softness for their structure, calmness instead of restlessness, and a cautious procession towards the future over their race to tomorrow. And yet, these clothes aren’t the ramblings of far out futurists, they are very much for the here and now.
