PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.
her.jpgHumberto Leon and Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and their best bud Oscar nominated director and writer Spike Jonze have once again collaborated on a capsule collection. Based on the costumes from Jonze's forthcoming film, her, a love story set in Los Angeles in the not-too-distant future between a man -- Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) -- and an advanced operating system -- Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson) -- the collection is comprised of button front shirts, panel blocked sweatshirts and sweatpants, patch pocket jackets, quilted shearling coats, printed tees and knits and Twombly's signature high-waisted pants.

Based on the the collaboration, we have five predictions for the future of fashion:  

1. Sweatsuits will have a comeback. Thankfully velour is not involved.   

2. With boys in high-waisted pants, moose-knuckle will become a common fear.  

3. Couples will dress the same. They'll be in basically the same outfits, but in varying colors or styles -- kinda like Mary-Kate and Ashley did in the '90s.  

4. As Amy Poehler observed, gender will be fluid. Boys, girls, menswear, womenswear -- let's call the whole thing off.   

5. Shearling jackets are timeless.
