Post-Apocalyptic Trends are Shown in Most Fashion Shows Now

By  |  0 Comments

Fashion can be a mystery at times, but it would not be as fun without it. As for now, the inspiration of aliens has been a must-have trend.

The movie Aliens directed and produced by Ridley Scott not only has incredible sci-fi drama, but it also includes some stellar costumes created by Britain’s hottest designers.

Craig Green is one of the designers who has created costumes for another movie called Aliens Covenant, with post-apocalyptic vibes introduced. The recent trend is spicing up people’s wardrobes, especially celebrities like Madonna and Bella Hadid.

Tony Glenville, the creative director at London College of Fashion says that the alien type of embodiment should be more about the assemblage of the garment itself.

Clothing elements are important. A jacket could potentially have zippers in odd places or pockets and sleeves reversed in an engaging way. It is supposed to read more as a collage rather than a single component. Craig Green envisioned multiple straps, buckles, belts, and so forth for his designs. Oxygen tube inspirations were evident when it came to accessorizing. The way Green describes it is “terror of the sea”, a dark and unpredictable taste when it comes to fashion.

But that is the point. Trends are for imagining and creating an array of peculiar and over-the-top styles, the best part being that people WILL be wearing them.

Another designer who goes by Rick Owens is an oddball with a method of bringing some madness into his work. His latest collection featured what looked like sleeping bags as coats, which looked like the models were carrying earthly possessions on their back. Weird is one way to put it, but somehow it rocked.

Even Kanye West has joined the crowd and is bringing the post-apocalyptic style into the public eye. He adds to the unique trend by pairing it with oversize sweatshirts and streetwear, but the rapper was spotted in head-to-toe camouflage. The look is been recreated by celebrities like Bella Hadid and Madonna in intrinsic ways.

The combat boot is making a comeback because of this fascinating trend. It has been used as a staple piece for a handful of autumn/winter fashion shows. They are being used for festival fashion because of the sturdy, closed-toed heels that make post-rain mud a lot more tolerable. The Hunger Games were amusingly used to reference McDonald’s new uniforms they hatched out, people calling them out for the idea being war-like rather than fast-food peppy.

Fashion is circulating, meaning the post-apocalyptic style was beloved back in the 90’s. Martin Margiela and Commes de Garcons were in the middle of famously supporting the impressive formation of the idea. It is like playing in a world full on fantasy. Post-apocalyptic descriptions of clothing have a distinct outlook on what could be.

The question “How would we survive?’ type of feel is found when playing around with the iconic look. It is almost as if these designers understand the world around us now, as horrible as that sounds. Politics have a huge impact on society today, nothing is for certain about what is about to happen in history. But we are a part of it.

There is a mix of colorful, vibrant clothing on the catwalks and dark, broody works of art. It defines what the fashion world is all about and it captures what people are feeling. What we wear can show more of an emotion than our facial features can. It is the world we imagine is happy and peaceful versus the world that is dystopic and depressing, and individuals have the power to choose which side they are on.
