See How Space-Inspired Fashions Changed Throughout The Years

During the 1960s, space was on everyone’s mind. The US and the USSR seemed to believe that whoever reached the moon first would be declared the world’s leading power. That’s why this era is known as the “space age” in fashion, and it’s fitting that its predominance wavered after the moon landing in 1969. But what characterized this style?

Some remnants are still present in today’s collections, so we made a list to show how these trends evolved through the years.
