From Dystopian Film Fashion to Dystopian Military Editorials

 - Aug 29, 2014
Thanks to movies like The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Giver dystopian film fashion is becoming a popular source of inspiration for many. In the fashion industry, many editorials are taking aesthetic inspiration from these dark-themed story lines.

To match the dark plots of these films, costume designers are creating clothes that tie into these grim and hopeless themes. Many of these films tell the tale of an individual or group of individuals that are trying to overthrow a corrupt system in power. These fashion editorials are playing around with costumes that take inspiration from military fashion coupled with darker color hues, weather resistant materials and despairing backgrounds. Many of these editorials also use vast and empty settings like desserts or abandoned locations to carry these dystopian themes through to the viewer.
