Floaters from the Waterplanet

What would we wear if our planet were covered with water? Vera de Pont has let her imagination run wild in a trendforecast for the fashion industry. The Waterplanet is a fictitious world of play, its inhabitants finding ways to stay adrift. A soft, bouncy layer covering the body. Strong knits and cords enclosing the skin, to prevent water from entering. Flippered feet, surreal shapes; materials and accessories become voluminous, lightweight, foamy and colourful. Patterns and colours are diluted, layered and translucent. Just go with the flow and imagine the beauty of this wavy world.
