Space Age

In The mid sixties the space age look really came into fashion with the designs of Andre Courreges.  He used materials such as plastic and metal and made clothes into geometrical shapes.  The colors he used were mostly metallic, whites, and reds.  Boots and goggles were also part of the space age look.  Pierre Cardin was another space age designer.  His clothes included catsuits, cut-out dresses and the material was metal and plastic.  Pierre Cardin was also the designer of the Beatles trademark collarless jackets.  The Space Age era was not just in fashion but was also in furniture, architecture and home decor.,,,,
