Star Trek: The Next Generation , which reached many millions of viewers, will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year. When it comes to us, it is no surprise that the fashion of Star Trek is related with brightly colored and suspiciously form-fitting uniform. But it is all about Star Trek’s costume? Let’s see how Star Trek does the talking with fashion. Unlike Star Wars, you can easily copy its costume to the runway. Instead of that, the cinematic styles of Star Trek influence the fashion world in a subtle way.
The designs of some customs are really unique and weird. The shiny raver shirt that Pike wear on the Playa has strong metallic accents in different bold colors. Not to mention those weird accessories, such as green-and-red-dotted cravat, incredible necklace and so on. However, to some extent, it’s in line with 60’s fashion style with the weird design and psychedelic prints.
Besides, it combines elements of futurism in the clothes and explores futurism. Take a glance at the gold lame costume that slave girl wears, which has a strong metallic accent. In the TV or film, you must have noticed that the streamlined shapes, metallic accents, and bold colors of clothing have a strong visual impact and further to influence apparel design. Just as Vogue magazine put it, “it is more about an exploration of futurism that confronts conventions.” In recent years, the futurism can be seen on the runway, such as AW17 Gucci and Fall 2017 Channel.
Take futurism back to the present, we can also wear these runway trends in a simple way, by opting for clothes that are mirrored, sleek silver or bronze accents on dresses, jumpsuits and tops. By adding just a touch of sparkle to an outfit, you’ll be so modern we’ll think you’ve struck outer space.
However, the discovery of Star Wars not only broadens our vision of outer space in future, but also reflects the variety of the adventures the crew got themselves into. Crop tops and thigh-high boots can be seen when they go to the mirror universe, but why not try some selected crop tops to discover the adventure in daily life.
