CYBER CHIC: By now, Opening Ceremony has sealed its reputation as the go-to outfit for quirky, geek-chic collaborations. So it should surprise no one that Disney Consumer Products, which has been on a push for fashion relevancy lately, sought out Humberto Leon and Carol Lim’s magic touch for the remake of the cult movie “Tron.” As it happened, Lim and Leon were huge “Tron” fans growing up and, thus, more than happy to design a capsule collection of “Tron: Legacy”-inspired clothes and accessories ($230-$575) that will be available at Opening Ceremony, Colette and Lane Crawford today, a month before the film, starring Olivia Wilde and Jeff Bridges, opens. Expect high-tech references. The women’s line includes bomber jackets with funnel necks, scuba shirts, and seamed leggings and dresses with laser-cut ring details. A Tulip dress and coat are meant to evoke the Light Cycle shape. Men’s wear features racer jackets and pants and a plethora of Tron’s signature neons: yellow, orange, blue and black. There are also two accessories, a neoprene sock boot and the Circle bag, done with Threeasfour, that’s an interpretation of the Identity Disc weapon, which presumably will mean something once you see the movie.
