OUT OF THE WILD
The ‘Out of the Wild’ warrior girl invites you to take a trip into a post-apocalyptic world, where fashion survivors battle the elements in fur, bondage-style strapping, disheveled fabrics and patchwork. Ragged chamois-style leathers have unfinished hems, crochet pieces are tattered and cobwebby, and fake furs appear pelted and pulled apart. Textured knitwear and mixed MATERIALS are central to this trend, with pieces that appear knotted, laddered, or adorned with feathers and fur.
Not only was my platforming on trend but it appears fashion is now getting the apocalyptic vibe too!
Topshop invites you to return to the dark ages, mixing inspiration from the sinister fairytales of the Art Nouveau movement with Beardsley’s illustrations for Oscar Wilde and the Banshees created by Neville Page for Avatar. There is a tough medieval feel through-out, appearing in fierce studded corsets and cage-like skirts with harness detailing. Leather is a key fabric, and is often decorated with hand-crafted, heavily-encrusted studwork. Footwear has strapping and harnessing touches.
