What’s The Future Of Fashion? Everything From Digital Clothes To 3D Constructions

Fashion is consistently evolving and creatively erupting at lightning speed. With technology and science added to the mix, the futuristic vision and execution by established designers and avant-garde labels are riveting. Digging deep within the subject, let’s dissect the various practices like kinetic components, digital clothing and 3D construction that has pushed the envelope.

1. Kinetic Fashion 

Kinectic fashion was popularised by Dutch designer Iris van Herpen during her debut Paris Haute Couture week presentation in 2018. Her latest Spring/Summer 2021 collection, titled Roots of Rebirth, further explores the concept. The idea is to apply scientific methodology in fashion and

Top Apple AirTag accessories: What’s available, what’s backordered

Apple’s latest accessory, a tracking device called the AirTag, a Tile competitor that allows you to track down objects like wallets, bags and keys using Apple’s Find My app. A single AirTag costs $29 (£29, AU$45), while you can get a four pack for $99 (£99, AU$149).

In fashion, one thing’s for sure – the era of sweatpants is over, and denim is back. It’s also pretty clear that skinny jeans, the style that has refused to die for 20 years, are finally, waning from fashion’s pole position, thanks to gen Z relentlessly roasting milllenials over their trouser choice. And that is where the certainties end.

What’s in the Oscars Gift Bags, and Why the Tradition Endures

Good morning.

After a singular year, an Oscars ceremony devoid of some its usual glitz and glamour is set to take place this weekend. But, as my colleague Brooks Barnes wrote in this dispatch, some things will be the same as always:

The coronavirus has forced Hollywood to do without most of its favorite rituals, including red-carpet premieres and see-and-be-seen power lunches. On Sunday, the 93rd Academy Awards will be scaled back, with few people allowed to attend in person and the lavish after-party scrapped.

But there is one beloved Tinseltown tradition that will not be repressed: the gift bag.
