Launch Slideshow

SHOW: Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Spring 2013 RTW

THEME: Futuristic motorcycle girl

OVERALL TAKEAWAY: If you’re sci-fi lover, this is the collection for you. Castelbajac’s show was all about the vision of a sexy futuristic girl, with plenty of motorcycle jackets and Star Trek-style sunglasses. Unlike some designers who stick to a safe black/white/nude palette, Castelbajac went all out with color, giving a soft blue and white floral jacket a punch with a black collar and buttons and nude Oxfords with neon yellow laces.

The badass vixen of the 27th century has everything she needs in this collection, from officewear (black, yellow, and gray mixed pattern separates) to evening attire (a green, black, and white dress with sleeve pleats so big they could be mistaken for wings). But the emphasis was on sexy, streamlined athletic looks, like a white jumpsuit with kneepad-style markings and utilitarian bags tucked under the arm like motorcycle helmets. None of these clothes would look out of place on a Firefly or Doctor Who vixen, but they also wouldn’t look wrong on a supermodel.
