Arguably one of the biggest pop culture events of 2012 was the time Tupac Shakur--that is, a hologram of him--appeared onstage at Coachella.
Even if you weren't in Indio, you knew about it; it was nearly impossible to be on Twitter that day and not read some 140 character comment on the almost 3-D projection.
Clearly, the moment had its impact--and not just in the music world. Since then, we've been noticing holographic details coming from our favorite designers this winter: Proenza Schouler's PS11 satchel gets the rainbow treatment
; so too do a pair of Stella McCartney slingbacks
(she also used the shimmery material to make an iPad case
). The list goes on: Asos
, and NastyGal
all stock hologramed items. Think of them us a dressed-up neutral--they're somewhere a nude and a white, but a little more toned down than anything sequined or rhinestoned.
And while we can't all be turned into holograms like Tupac, now we can dress head-to-toe like one.
