This, my friends, is priceless. Via Weird Vintage, one of my favorite Tumblrs, I’ve found this glorious video from 1939 describing what fashion will be like in the Year 2000. Surprisingly, it’s not all that far off: we have silver in our sportswear (to cut the smell), convertible dresses and pants, see-through tops, bizarre ballgowns, and pretty much everything else they showed here except really, really snazzy hats. the shoes, in fact, are pretty much bang-on.
To be honest, I’m kind of glad that it wasn’t as accurate about men’s fashion. That is a Ming the Merciless as Playground Perv costume if ever I saw one.
