A Beautiful Black Hole

Black hole? Deep space? Whatever this dress is meant to depict, one thing's for sure — it's absolutely out of this world!

Galactic Trenchcoat

"The Jetsons" meets "Inspector Gadget" in this shiny, space-age trenchcoat. The model appears to be wearing an eclipse-print top underneath.

Dress like the night sky with this galaxy-themed jumpsuit.

Hand Warmer from the Future

Why wear gloves when you can just stick your hands in a giant, fuzzy purse? Side bags are overrated. Plus this front-hanging purse matches perfectly with a shiny pair of moon boots.

Ready for a Spacewalk

If Chanel were in charge of designing actual EVA suits, astronauts might wear something that looks like this during spacewalks. The only thing missing from this model's cosmic ensemble is a space helmet.

Space-Age Shorts Suit

This metallic shorts suit looks completely out of this world. Shorts might not traditionally be the best wintertime wardrobe selection, but this outfit looks like it could keep you warm in the snow (and possibly blind those around you in the sun).

A Stellar Dress

This outfit looks like it was made for a moon princess.
