Virtual reality has gone high-fashion.

Maison Margiela, a French luxury fashion house, debuted its fall/winter collection on Wednesday as part of Paris Couture Week.

The clothes themselves were avant-garde – think layered puffer jackets, deconstructed overcoats, and some tinfoil headgear – but it was the accessories that stood out: models walked the runway in VR headsets and iPhone ankle holsters.

As The Cut points out, Margiela creative director John Galliano is known for incorporating technology into his collections – at his last runway show, models looked like fashionable robots.

But this new collection shows that while VR isn’t exactly mainstream yet, it certainly can be high-fashion.

Take a look at all the weird, wild runway looks.
