Maison Margiela, a French luxury fashion house, debuted its fall/winter collection on Wednesday as part of Paris Couture Week. The clothes themselves were avant-garde — think layered puffer jackets, deconstructed overcoats, and some tinfoil headgear — but it was the accessories that stood out: models walked the runway in VR headsets and iPhone ankle holsters.
As The Cut points out, Margiela creative director John Galliano is known for incorporating technology into his collections — at his last runway show, models looked like fashionable robots. But this new collection shows that while VR isn’t exactly mainstream yet, it certainly can be high-fashion.
Take a look at all the weird, wild runway looks. The Oculus Rift you can buy isn’t as colorful — it only comes in black.
Margiela’s version, unlike the Rift, is wireless, but there’s a good chance they just removed the connecting cable which is detachable. 16 ‘Shark Tank’ home products that are actually useful 17 jokes that only smart people will really appreciate The 50 best TV show seasons of all time, according to critics Here’s what happens with your stuff after you die We visited convenience-store rivals Wawa and Sheetz to see which does it better — and the winner is clear The best mini fridges you can buy Share your opinion — Become a BI Insider today 9 fun, free places to watch Fourth of July fireworks in New York City Read more from businessinsider.com…
