A Dark Light at Beyond Retro

Posted on March 21 2012

If you read our Spring/Summer 2012 style guides you'll be as excited as we are about our current in-store theme, A Dark Light, a look that combines the Sci-Fi-inspired menswear style of the same name with our women's Futuro story to create a graphic display of black and white set in a shimmering future. From 1960s modernism to the '80s power silhouette via '70s lamé, futuristic inspirations exist in every decade, so there is plenty to choose from at Beyond Retro. Like its dominant  palette of black and white, opposites attract in this style, so sheer fabrics sit alongside glistening metallics, checks work as well as stripes and long iridescent exteriors offer as much as cropped lace jackets. Guys, your key piece is the classic bomber jacket - whether in shiny leather or matt wool, this shape is a summer staple that's complemented by humbug stripes and checkerboard squares on shirts, knits, blazers and trousers as well as metallic or patented surfaces on a range of sportswear. Girls, look for dresses in shimmering metallics and space age textures. Tops and blouses are guided by transparency and negative spaces (sheer and cut-away detailing being the dominant characteristics), while skirts range from ghostly tulles to brash plastics, long and ethereal to short and sassy. If you can't make it down to Beyond Retro to soak up the inspiration, take a look at the photos below and be sure to check out our Dark Light collection online.
