In this weekly shopping column, fashion editor Imran Jalal shows you the buys that will take off with the sci-fi trend.
#1: Marques'Almeida polyester smock top, $1,194, www.farfetch.com
Not every sci-fi look has to look like it’s out of The Jetsons. This dress is a foil to that notion.

Part jewellery, part timepiece, this sleek number does double duty.
#3: Metal and acetate sunglasses, Valentino
The Trinity + Agent Smith sunglasses hybrid.
#4: Polyester hot pants, Topshop
The short cut to looking Space Age cool: metallics.
#5: Superstitious Alber Elbaz by Frederic Malle EDP, $530, Malmaison by The Hour Glass
This scent created by Lanvin’s former designer is a modern cocktail of notes like Turkish rose, Egyptian jasmine, peach, sandalwood, Haitian vetiver, patchouli, and musk.

This cardigan ditches its bookish charm and looks like a futuristic chainmail wrap dress in silver lame.
