Designer of the Day…Future Classics

With lots of draping and tons of futuristic inspiration, today’s label Future Classics by designer Julie Wilkins is definitely something that has caught and held my attention.

Wilkins created Future Classics in 2000 and has since swept fashion by storm with her almost sculptural pieces of jersey garments. The aesthetic behind each Future Classics garment is to share the study of garment construction through exposed seams and hems. This ethos also provides a great view of what happens when classic garment shapes (hooded sweatshirts; leggings) mix with modern deconstruction techniques. Check out the flats of these Future Classic garments – they make it quite apparent that construction is extremely important…

There are 2 lines in the Future Classics label: Future Classics (which is basically everyday knit pieces) and Future Classics Dress (which is a more couture, high fashion collection of pieces).

I love the shirts of the label. I’ve always been drawn to clothes that have many different dimensions and the looks of Future Classics definitely has that!
