While dystopic fashion isn’t new, GmbH‘s Benjamin Alexander Huseby and Serhat Isik took on this overused idea in a totally new, exciting, and different way. This season, their men and woman are not victims of an apocalypse, per se, nor are they preparing for one. The narrative here is that people have escaped a dying earth and are now currently in pursuit of a new world to live in. And what will they wear for such an adventure? It’s all about precise tailoring and sleek casual style. Apart from a few cocoons sportswear shapes, most of the looks in this show flattered and tightly held the body to its truest and most distinguished form. Waists were nipped, shoulders were extremely defined, and even dresses had a streamlined flow to them that was straight and strict. The apocalyptic message came through with the manipulated denim looks, which from both near and far looked like the effects of global warming. Its a subtle and sophisticated take on environmental activism, one that fashion, as well as other industries, need to take seriously from now on!
