Fashion industry is constantly changing and evolving , and often it’s pushing the boundaries of what we used to see in “classic” fashion shows. Some of the futuristic fashion pieces don’t look just uncomfortable but also quite creepy. Let’s see some examples.
- Scary Beautiful is definitely the most strange footwear we’ve ever seen. The massive heels appear backwards on the foot, so the wearers feet point straight down the back (as if in ballet shoes) with their shin leaning against the front “heel” end of the design to balance. The shoes are a collaboration between artist Leanie van der Vyver and Dutch shoe designer René van den Berg.
- Google Glass is a wearable computer with a head-mounted display that is being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project, with the mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer. Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format, that can interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands. While the frames do not currently have lenses fitted to them, Google is considering partnering with sunglass retailers such as Ray-Ban or Warby Parker, and may also open retail stores to allow customers to try on the device. The Explorer Edition cannot be used by people who wear prescription glasses, but Google has confirmed that Glass will eventually work with frames and lenses that match the wearer’s prescription; the glasses will be modular and therefore possibly attachable to normal prescription glasses.
- Neck brace/braces from Nekromantik collection looks very scary and painful. Metalwork, handmade “Nekromantik” collection is made by London-based costume designer Katarzyna Konieczka, Photography Marcin Twardowski.
- London-based designer CJ made the fashion collection called Wood Be, which aimed to “explore the idea of using natural alternative material as the primary source, such as wood, which is one of the most treasure ways to communicate with the nature, and to refine the traditional techniques of wood and crafts to fit into the contemporary look.”
- And for the end there is something I would actually wear. In 2007 fashion designer Hussein Chalayan featured something truly remarkable: robotic, self-undressing fashion. Models would walk onstage in flowy dresses, only to have them slowly and unexpectedly start to move and reconfigure themselves into a completely different outfit.
