The Space Age, 1969

In 1969, West German television program PARIS AKTUELL broadcasted the future through choreographed fashion vignettes set to the tune of Piero Piccioni and Mike Melvoin. The films capture a whole decade’s worth of dreams, built on rocketships to the stars. The Space Age would be a defining era, holding promise for the world of tomorrow. For designers Cardin, Rabanne, and Courreges, it would be a true romance. While their fascinations with the future proved to be no more than a fancy of the imagination, their eloquence and conviction of expression is certainly something to ponder.
