Anne van Galen, a recent graduate from Design Academy Eindhoven, has created a line of fashion that explores a fictional world. Dubbed 'Warriors of Downpour City,' the pieces imagine the wardrobes of people living in a perpetual rainfalls. Aesthetically pleasing and eye-opening, the designs do more than simply imagine a future that is completely altered due to climate change.

From experimental headgear to transparent jackets and other strange shields, Anne van Galen's vision of the future of fashion is utterly beautiful and revealing. It appears that she predicts a time and place in which people also embrace nudity along with rain. Anne van Galen writes, "In my vision, I celebrate the rain, in which fashion becomes naked, transparent and layered with thin diluted colours."
