Futuristic Fashions that Never Came to Fruition

Fear is the Mind Killer

I love Rick Owens. His designs tend to either look like the fashions of an emotionless vampire-ruled future or like something out of the "Dune" space opera universe. These designs from his Spring/Summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection are clearly reflect his more cosmic tendencies. I for one hope everyone in the future dresses like a Bene Gesserit reverend mother.

About the Author: Robert Lamb spent his childhood reading books and staring into the woods — first in Newfoundland, Canada and then in rural Tennessee. There was also a long stretch in which he was terrified of alien abduction. He earned a degree in creative writing. He taught high school and then attended journalism school. He wrote for the smallest of small-town newspapers before finally becoming a full-time science writer and podcaster. He’s currently a senior writer at HowStuffWorks and has co-hosted the science podcast Stuff to Blow Your Mind since its inception in 2010. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling with his wife Bonnie, discussing dinosaurs with his son Bastian and crafting the occasional work of fiction.
