When it comes to fashion, it is far from futuristic. Rightfully, it need not be, but that’s not what sci-fi novels and movies have thought us. Truth be told, we don’t even have a clear concept of what constitutes to futuristic fashion. Perhaps, a dress that displays tweets, or one that, for some reasons, turn more and more transparent when mobile data is collected, qualifies as fashion of the future? Whatever it is, we bet these Lighted LED lashes will be more than fitting for the future and the good news for all fashion futurists, the future is now.

For the uninitiated, Y-3 is a collab between Adidas and Japanese design guru Yohji Yamamoto and so, yes, Virgin Galactic’s pilots will donning designer’s garment when they take to the space.

Dot One Wants You To Wear Your DNA Around Your Neck

Do you know that you and I share 50 percent of our DNA with a banana and about 90 percent with a mouse? In fact, you and I share 99.9 percent similarity in genetic make up and so do the rest of the human beings on Earth.

From the cheek swap you send to them, Dot One profiles your DNA and using an algorithm to convert the genetic data into color. The result is a palette unique to you and you alone.

Big Mac Fans, You Can Now Wear Your Favorite Double Patty Sandwich Too

What do a global fast food chain does when its earning goes downhill? More promotion and advertising perhaps? But not in the case of McDonald Sweden.

Lets not kid ourselves, folks. If you seriously adore the major fast food chain’s signature burger, you would want to wear it, or perhaps sleep with it right? Of course, you can’t literally sleep with burger cos’ you’d be inviting ants and stuff. You can, however, dress up in Big Mac themed slumber wear, or perhaps cosy in Big Mac themed comforter set.

Marshall Marches into Fashion Market with Marshall Clothing Collection

After supplying musicians with amplification systems for over half a century and consumers with headphones and speakers in recent time, the iconic name in rock Marshall is gearing up to offer you clothing too.

The collection, simply called Marshall Clothing Collection, is said to have drew its inspiration from “unruly band-merch of iconic rock legends.” In another words, they are simple, no frill product which any self-respecting music lovers and musicians alike would dig (read: very ‘rockish’ like what rockstar would wear).

You Can Wrap a Bacon Around Your Neck Without Getting Oily, Well, That’s If You’re Really Into Bacon

How big a fan are you of bacons? If your answer is insanely huge, well, then the Fou Lard Bacon Silk Scarf is the must-have fashion accessory for you. Designed by Natalie Luder, Fou Lard Bacon Silk Scarf is a clever play of words too.

That’s just some literacy information, which is as cool as (or as weird) as the product is. Made of 100 percent silk aka “Crèpe de Chine” (literally, fabric of China), digitally printed with photorealistic image of the ever delicious (but superbly sinful) bacon.
