There was no doubt that Marine Serre’s moon-print stretch tops, leggings, and bodysuits have been the clothes of the summer. They have been already ultra-famous earlier than Beyoncé wore a brown moon-print bodysuit along dancers in Black Is King, however searches for the object rose 426% withinside the forty eight hours after the visible album’s debut.
In the weeks immediately following, anybody regarded to show up in Marine’s moon: celebrities, influencers—even dogs. When it got here time to show her spring 2021 series in a dystopian movie, Amor Fati, Serre iterated at the style, reworking it into photo checkerboards and a round moon-dot sample the emblem calls “moonfish.”
Appearing in a series of the movie wherein the primary character, portrayed through Juliet Merie, enters right into a dreamlike trance, the blue-on-blue photo will remind the fashion-obsessed of some other iconic bodysuit: Jean Paul Gaultier’s cyber one-piece from fall 1995.
JPG’s dotted catsuits, whose varying-length dots have been stimulated through the Op Art painter Victor Vasarely, have been immediate hits at the runway. “I desired to make a body, the form of a body, withinside the Vasarely opticalwear,” Gaultier informed Vogue in advance this 12 months whilst we did a deep dive on his “Cyber” series.
Even earlier than Vogue revisited those biomorphic dots, celebrities had stuck on though. Cardi B, Jorja Smith, Charli XCX, and others were checking out out the curve-accentuating material.For Serre to obliquely reference Parisian fashion’s enfant horrible makes sense—despite the fact that her new print takes its call from aquatic life.
Gaultier is just like the godfather of cutting-edge Paris fashion: Martin Margiela and Nicolas Ghesquière each labored in his atelier, and Simon Porte Jacquemus, Olivier Rousteing, and lots of different French designers have paid him homage.
In this, Serre’s already well-known bodysuit recognizes some other well-known bodysuit—situating her model of the future, but post-anthropocene it would be, withinside the past. The style, rendered in a top, dress, and bodysuit, are certain to promote out quickly.
