One Direction embraces space for their ‘Drag Me Down’ video.
Space is having a moment, even in fashion, with Gigi Hadids little brother sporting a far-out look on the most recent cover of Teen Vogue.
We’ve already talked about Mars and space as the latest inspiration for spring 2016, but it seems as if one specific item is seriously taking off: the spacesuit.
It’s nothing new in the style scene. One Direction’s 2015 “Drag Me Down” video had the four British crooners lip-syncing in astronaut apparel.
It’s not just pop stars embracing a space-inspired look. Astronauts are also stepping up their fashion game.
In January, Adidas’ Y-3 brand designed a slick spacesuit for Virgin Galactic. It’s only a prototype, but it shows how stylish the future can look.
For Teen Vogue‘s June/July issue, Anwar Hadid was photographed in a spacesuit from Alpha Industries, a brand known for manufacturing outerwear for the U.S. Department of Defense, but also worn by civilians with a love of military style.
The spacesuit, now on sale for $59.99 (down from $111), is one that’s been a bestseller from the brand.
And you better snatch it now before Elon Musk and the rest of mankind ditches Earth for better pastures on Mars. As we know, Earth is so 2016 and like fashion, we’re constantly looking toward the future for what’s on the horizon.
