You may have thought that we’d all be wearing tin suits or greenhouse gas-resistant onesies 300 years from now, but think again. If the new film Passengers is any indication, how we’ll be dressing in 2316 looks nearly identical to how we dress today.
Surprised? We were, too. But the film’s costume designer, Jany Temime, who has also worked on James Bond, Harry Potter, Gravity, and other high-profile films, was extremely deliberate with her style choices. In an interview with Refinery29, she explained:
“I think by the 24th century, fashion will have seen it all. We will go back to basics and minimalism, a sort of anti-fashion. I also believe that the social classes will be more divided: The workmen will dress like workmen, and the upper class will be dressed in natural, luxurious fabrics.”
In the movie, starring Jennifer Lawrence as an upper-class New York writer and Chris Pratt as Midwestern engineer, the two meet while aboard a spaceship traveling to another planet and a romance ensues, but not without complications on the way.
Temime says that when designing the film’s wardrobe, she kept in mind the class differences between J. Law and Chris Pratt’s characters.
We can’t wait to see the movie when it comes out December 21st!
