Step through the doors of EP and you'll understand why our heads are often swimming with references. We like to think our eye is always working and in a bid to share more exciting content with everyone, we are launching a a series of special blog posts featuring some of our favourite content. Watch this space.

First up lets transport ourselves to the 1960s and take a look at designs from Pierre Cardin and Courreges. Anyone get a chance to see Allen Jones at the RA? His promenade of fibreglass single figure statements in the final room alone are show stoppers, not to mention the iconic portrait of a plastic clad Kate Moss. Surprise, surprise, we started to associate this visual language with our favourite space age fashion.

With the advent of 'Star Trek' and '2001: A Space Odyssey' in the 1960s, are we surprised that progression was integral to process of Pierre Cardin and Coureges?
