“First Man”, the movie starring Ryan Gosling about the legendary space mission that turned the astronaut Neil Armstrong into the first man to walk on the Moon in 1969, is inspiring fashion’s hottest trend: the boiler suit.
The boiler suits worn by Gosling in the movie that has a great ‘60s aesthetics, are simply everywhere; high fashion labels as Celine, Vetements, Stella McCartney, Dior, Alexa Chung and Dries van Noten have presented fabulous boiler suits in chic fabrics and colours, and the stylish overall has taken over our Instagram feeds.
Fashionable women love the casual but effortless chic garment; its loose fit is comfortable and flattering for all types of bodies, and this fashion staple is so versatile that you can wear a boiler suit day or night, it looks great as an office outfit or with heels and sparkling jewellery, at a party. By the way, Bianca Jagger and Co. were already rocking their boilersuits at the disco Studio 54 in New York, in the ‘70s.
There are many different fabrics and models you can choose from; you have boilersuits with long or short sleeves, belted or with an elastic waist, with straight or wide legs, with cropped or long legs, with plenty of pockets or none, embellished with big buttons or zippers and so on.
And we noticed that the astronaut and space travel have inspired quite a lot of trends lately; besides the boiler suits, we are also seeing a lot of silver and aluminium-like clothes, metallic silver boots, sandals and bags, and the incredible aluminium and gold foil eye shadows that we showed you here, which remind us of the uniforms worn in space.
Even the new perfume Candy Night by Prada makes us dream of starry nights and space travel with a bottle in beautiful colours that looks like a fascinating twilight sky.
I don't know about you, but Frank and I are already singing "Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars" while I choose some fab new boiler suits!
