What is Post-Apocalyptic Apparel?
Apocalyptic fashion is currently in vogue thanks to the cinema and social networks. Neutral maximalism impregnates this movement with lots of deconstrutecd pieces and asymmetry. People voluntarily wear these clothes the wrong way. Post-apocalyptic fashion shares a lot with the Normcore movement.
In many cases, the apocalyptic aesthetic feels a little cinematic because movies like Mad Max, Star Wars, Dune, and many other desert action/sci-fi productions have inspired this movement.
The central theme these movies share is rebellion. In our never-ending pursuit of individualism, apocalyptic fashion allows people to take hyper-sophisticated, cookie-cutter designs and distort them using pieces of thread, pins, belts, and miscellaneous scraps of fabrics to create something original. At the heart of the aesthetic is a movement towards taking unloved clothes and repurposing them into something exciting.
With a simple twist, a random slash, and some tactical snips here and there, people can give thrift sore leftovers and wardrobe scraps a new life. And because the look encourages unique styling and the abandonment of traditional ways of wearing pieces, the possibilities of a single wardrobe item are increased tenfold; the only limit is your imagination. In a time when the fashion industry is producing more waste than ever, a trend that promotes reuse is undoubtedly something we can get behind.
We may be taking inspiration from the world's end, but creative movements like this prove that fashion is far from a barren wasteland.
