A 1930's prediction of the future of clothing

This fantastic 1930's video predicts what our clothes will look like and how they will function in the distant future: the year 2000. Some of the prediction are not too far off! In fact, some of them have been and are being realized today. Predictions include:

  • a dress that can be adapted to morning, afternoon or evening wear
  • a dress that explores new materials such as transparent knit and even glass
  • shoes will have cantilevered heels
  • an electric belt will adapt the body to climatic changes
  • clothing that "scientifically" keeps the right atmosphere for the wearer
  • an electric headlamp to "help her to find an honest man!"
  • a suit for him that includes a phone, radio and pockets fo coins, keys and "candies for cuties"

Truly fantastic.
