Future Combatants Spring/Summer 2010

Military fashion has been the talk of the town for quite some time now, but this Spring summer presents a eccentric blend of contemporary and parallel fashion with the ancient warlords wardrobe which has reloaded a new age Military fashion altogether …..This is the future warrior look.

The ancient world is the centre of this trend with historical influences coming from roman, Egyptian to Celtic warrior women. The twist to the story is all about adding a contemporary flavor to the traditional interpretations of futuristic approach.

Highly inspired by the ancient civilization this look is bold and flamboyant …all and all it’s a fusion of tribal and military fashion.

Key design elements responsible for the look include metal and metallic influences, tribal motifs and tattoos, feather, fur, leather and bead work.

Other prime details along the silhouette are hard and prominent shoulders to indicate power and influence, high splits, exaggerated and flashy trims, and body hugging short dresses wit metallic finishing.

Chic olive dresses and smart multi pocket khaki jackets have replaced the regular work wear, with plenty of costume fun especially at jean Paul Gaultier tailcoat with fringed epaulettes. Conjure up the ultimate military and Louis Vuitton, but leaves it to Christopher Decarnin at Balmain to conjure up the ultimate military tailcoat with fringed epaulettes.

Some of the designers like Sass and Bide have showcased a mixed tribal and Amazonian approach with design details like metal plating around the breasts, leggings and shoulders while keeping a strong feminine undertone at the same time.

This isn’t the sort of trend where rules should be laid down, its rather an open interpretation which demands not to be taken too literally either and works best with an outfit that gives the impression of some underlying fierceness rather then the overt look of a costume. Blending ultra feminine with tough warriors for example soft flowing fabrics against sharp metallic’s or studded straps has worked wonders.

This look has been glamorized and enhanced with gladiator style sandal, studded belts new and edgier jeweler and tattoos.
