Retro-futurism

Posted in design, fashion by menno1976 on March 16, 2010

Ok..as you might know I’m a big Goldfrapp fan. They’re about to release their latest album titled “Head First” and the website has been restyled to fit the new theme which is a modern take on eighties retro-futurism. I’ve seen this trend popping up here and there and even though it’s really over the top, I sort of like it. (I’m usually more into organic, natural styles)

Retro-futurism is characterized by streamlined shapes, the fantasy of a utopian society, exaggerated sci-fi buildings and vehicles, geometry (especially triangles), a cool palette (purple, fuschia, electric blue) and of course lots of metal.
