I will mostly be using "galaxy" to describe this print. Other terms used to describe this style include cosmic print and celestial print (which I wanted to use to describe this).
--- Galaxy Prints ---Since my childhood days, I have always adored and admired stars and space. Being in a big city like Houston doesn't allow you to truly gauge the beauty of space from the naked eye on a clear night. There was one time where I got to truly enjoy the beauty of space. That was back in 1994 for me, when I looked up into the sky one night and saw thousands of stars in the sky. It was so beautiful!
So you can imagine that seeing galaxy prints on various garments really catch my eye. Most cosmic prints are mostly starry and sparkly displays across a mostly dark-colored garment. Most galaxy prints consist of many splashes of color that resembles a galaxy or any other starry display. Then, a bunch of sparkles are adorned to provide the look of brightly-twinkling stars. The end result is a beautiful and spectacular starry display adorning various garments and accessories. There may not be anything like sequins or anything to demonstrate shine and sparkle with galaxy prints, but beautiful starry displays are just as bedazzling with galaxy print.
The one credited for making such celestial designs to be chic today is a Scottish designer named Christopher Kane. Christopher Kane has created a number of collections featuring galaxy prints. Even though these prints look amazing on females, the galaxy print is NOT exclusively feminine. In fact, Christopher Kane released a collection of cosmic print garments for men as part of his Spring/Summer 2011 Menswear Collection. So I'd say this bloke is trying to make galaxy print stylish for everyone (and perhaps everything).
If trying to style outfits with these galaxy prints, I certainly wouldn't wear anything to overpower the galaxy print garment(s); and I also wouldn't wear more than one galaxy print item at once. I would make the galaxy print garment the centerpiece and try not to overpower my outfit by wearing some other galaxy print item.
Up next are some picture examples of this print style.
