Opening Ceremony: Ready-to-Wear AW16

Tron meets Blade Runner. Yes and yes. Those were the cited inspos for Carol Lim and Humberto Leon’s Opening Ceremony collection, devoted to a future fantastic vision but actually rooted firmly in the not-too-distant past. Retro futurism was the mood, slick silhouettes tinged with changing colours and metallic threads, combining ideas of the almost-there with the barely gone. Will we be wearing velvet in the future? Well, I guess if the future extends to next season we will be.
