Fashion Review: Galaxy Prints

I'm probably blogging about this a little bit late in season, but I feel that I must. 'Cos it's been such a huge hype, though I rarely see people wear them in Malaysia.
From the 2011 Christopher Kane Collection.

I don't know about you, but from the moment I laid eyes on those prints, it was love at first sight. The only reason why I haven't gotten anything in this particular print is because it's so difficult to find one at an affordable price, and I have a thin wallet.
I will admit though, I doubt these prints are for everyone. Because wearing galaxy prints and strutting around the streets of KL would definitely make you stick out like a sore thumb. Some people might prefer something a wee bit understated. But hey, why blend in when you can stand out?
Isn't it beautiful? 

I don't know about you, but I find that nebula prints lend a more fantasy-like aura for any article of clothing, and a more futuristic appearance. Some people might find it hard to accept, because the print itself is loud and imposing. But to me, I think it's absolutely lovely. 

The downside is, I'm not too sure if this is a trend that will last. I just can't seem to see it as an evergreen thing. But then again, I could be wrong.

Here's a tip. If you planning on wearing anything galaxy printed, make sure you pair it with understated colours. The print itself is attention-grabbing. And there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.You wouldn't want to look like an overly dressed clown. 

The verdict:
It's cool. And if you're a hipster or into indie, you'd probably love it to bits. I would definitely wear it. But I'm not too sure if it might get a bit overrated. Cos to me, when anything hipster gets overrated, it ultimately becomes boring. 

Till next time. Au revoir, beautiful ones. xoxo
