Heron Preston, the DJ and menswear designer whose name is blowing up, just went stratospheric for his new collaboration with NASA. You can channel your childhood dream of being an astronaut with Preston’s range of outerwear, t-shirts and accessories. The capsule dropped stores and online yesterday, and the designer released an accompanying film Above the Clouds.
The film, directed by designer and filmmaker David Laven, went behind the scenes of the 31-piece collection, ending with the signature pieces being propelled 32 miles above the Earth’s surface. Also, in case you were concerned that you wouldn’t *actually* be space-ready in Preston’s collection, the 3M nylon jackets are designed according to NASA standards.
The pieces have a space-age nostalgia, with NASA’s retired 1976 “Worm” logo, and the bright red and cobalt colors. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration may seem like an unlikely collaborator, but it’s not Preston’s first unexpected creative partner. When he debuted at Paris Men’s Fashion Week in 2016, he showed a collection in collaboration with the NYC Department of Sanitation.
The NASA capsule celebrates the organization’s 60th anniversary and pays special attention to its orbital debris program, which tracks man-made space debris currently orbiting our planet, from broken satellites to Legos. Check out the full collection here, and you might want to prepare for space travel sooner rather than later — it’s selling out quickly.
