Astrophysicist wonder boy Neil DeGrasse Tyson once said:
“We are part of this universe. We are in this universe. But perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us.”
If you love the idea of the universe being in us, how about wearing it? New fashion house Shadow Play NYC will help you do just that.
Their collection of dresses, skirts and scarves feature beautiful prints taken from NASA’s Hubble Telescope. The designs are the work of Ximena Chouza and Ali Bennaim who are friends and real life star gazers, as well as recent Parsons Graduates.
Many of their products are made with 100% Organic Cotton Jersey, including the loop scarves, which feature images of the Small Magellanic Cloud Nebula, the Mystic Mountain and Eagle Nebula. The dresses and skirts playfully display an array of sky images that would look great for both casual and dressed up affairs.
