Facts about the Clothing Line and how it ties Futuristic Elements of the film, Her.
Spike Jonze new futuristic film, Her is set in the 2050s. Costume Designer Casey Storm and Opening Ceremony teamed to make a clothing line, keeping in mind how fashion will be like by the time set in the movie.
Fact one: we literally keep our gadgets on our bodies all the time. For the Her by Opening Ceremony collection, “every pocket is meant to perfectly fit a device, a tablet or an iPhone,” Leon told the New York Times. For instance, a rugby shirt has an iPhone-shaped pocket on the front, and jackets come with piping for cables and wires. (The clothing line ignores one important part of the future, however: wearable tech. The cuffs on the sweaters and shirts here haven’t been altered to accommodate a Jawbone Up or Nike Fuelband, for example.)
Fact two: The economic and domestic roles of men and women are more interchangeable than ever before. Women can now run mega-corporations, and men can be stay-at-home dads. This applies equally to fashion. The Opening Ceremony line is entirely unisex, and doesn’t even include different sizing options for men and women. Problems with fit aside, this represents the complete dovetailing of fashion for men and women, which has been inching closer and closer together over the years. Even the women in the campaign (and in the film) are barefaced, a trend T magazine recently dissected.
