Nanette Lepore Heads to Mars

As the lights dimmed at Nanette Lepore‘s fall/winter 2013 show at Lincoln Center on Wednesday, the runway turned into a metaphorical spaceship, and a voice boomed over the loudspeaker announcing our imminent arrival on Mars. Lepore wasn’t kidding. Her collection was rampant with futuristic flourishes, from iridescent sweaters and hologram handbags to asymmetrical necklines and geometric cutouts that wouldn’t be out of place on Star Trek. Lucky for us, they’re softened and toned down just enough to suit the modern woman—or, should we say, the woman of the future.
