Our friends at Wikkipedia define retro futurism as the depiction of the future as seen in the 1960's and prior, or a blending of retro styles with futuristic technology. Got that?
However you wish to define it, the very idea of looking back in order to look ahead is a bit mind boggling and trippy, yes?
As I mentioned on Monday, no one really did retro futurism better than Pierre Cardin. Cardin was known for his space age unisex designs. If Jane Jetson had been a wee bit more sophisticated and at all liberated I think she would have approved. Lets take a took.

|I bet they get pretty clear reception with those things.|

|I supposed when your only dress is this minimalist and perfect, there is really no need to change.|
Have a beautiful day.
