Pants of the Future?

High-waisted pants are making a fashion comeback thanks to director Spike Jonze’s ”Her”

Posted on

It’s set in the future, but you won’t see any space-age style in Her. Instead, costume designer Casey Storm’s wardrobe is rooted in retro-futurism. The garments are both familiar and foreign, including one item that’s captivating filmgoers and fashionistas alike — the high-waisted pants worn by our hero Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix, left). Hipsters take note: The torso-hugging trousers — inspired by Theodore Roosevelt’s riding britches — are available for purchase as part of the Her by Opening Ceremony clothing collection.
