Midcentury sci fi, 80s cartoons SIlverhawks with the character named Copper Kid. This is my take on futurism. Originally this look was supposed to be a joyous and optimistic post. Few hours ago I read that Nicolas Ghesquière, one of the most influential designers in fashion and my foremost fashion hero left Balenciaga. I was so devastated. He was responsible in inspiring me to pursue fashion as a career. His vision was and still is so influential that fashion follows after him. I dont know what will happen hereon but for now Im mourning the loss of the greatest fashion collaboration in history.
I must say futurism became part of the modern fashion vocab thanks to Nicolas. This look is a tribute to his legacy at Balenciaga.
About the helmet:
