Our ‘look to the future’ trend has been bubbling away for some time and can be found in tv, fashion & homewares. The subject is quite broad and all centres around one word, ‘science’. Brian Cox (who is now super cool) is the face of the television movement, with other celebrities following behind. Fashion collections for Spring/Summer 2012 saw world renowned designers, dressing their models with ‘spaceage’ clothes and alien inspired hairstyles, whilst architects and interior designers are having fun with white futuristic spaces, teamed with splashes of punchy neon.
