The Find: Futuristic Dresses

Spring fashion looks forward this year, with dresses sculpted into geometric shapes, carved from metallic fabrics, and skewed into asymmetrical silhouettes. Our shopper hunted for experimental dresses you can wear in the present.


Stella McCartney
$1530

Along with Balenciaga, Versace and Hussein Chalayan, Stella McCartney led fashion's sci-fi trend this spring. At the meatpacking-district store, I found this short silver dress. The silk-polyester material felt so light, I wondered for a moment if it was a high-tech fabric, and the straight fit was flattering. But the gigantic, elastic-cuffed sleeves looked like metallic trash bags. My childhood heroine, Anne of Green Gables, may have loved puffed sleeves, but I don't want to go back to the future. 429 14th St., nr. Ninth Ave.; 212-255-1556.
