Orange Futurism

Burnt orange becomes symbolic as cyberpunk fears seem less like science fiction

Implications - Originally associated with industrial signage and hazardous alerts, burnt orange has taken hold amongst avant garde tastemakers in the form of designer pieces and covetable sneakers that boast a specific science fiction feeling. The subdued familiarity of this once alarming color speaks to the contemporary retro-futurism inspired by the bleakness of the cyberpunk films of the 1980s and 1990s in a time when extreme political, environmental and economic concerns have made even the most fantastical plots of the genre seem commonplace and not far from our current reality.

Workshop Question - What relationships can you observe between color trends in the fashion world and a tenuous political and environmental climate?
