Prepare to take on new frontiers this fall in utilitarian uniforms. Recollections of the industrial American yesteryear are met with severe expectations for the future. The beréted models at Dior marched down the runway sporting denim jumpsuits reminiscent of early railroad days. Though, be it a sign of the times, the influence of the French Resistance is unmistakable. When it comes to apocalyptic fashion, Yeezy does it. Designer Kanye West’s streetwear collection progresses through each stage of pioneer, dystopia, and apocalypse. As the mood of the collection intensifies, so does the color scheme. Head-to-toe dungaree ensembles evolve into camo and maroon military uniforms, worthy of The Hunger Games. Finishing with faceless, shapeless figures pragmatically layered in reflective black and animal hide gear. Likewise at Celine and Stella McCartney, where tailored noir trench coats and Matrix dusters reign supreme. Theocratic robes and disheveled, piecemeal garments intermingle with provincial frocks at Acne. While McQueen and Louis Vuitton portend a surreal future with moto jackets and dresses a la The Fifth Element. Read on to learn the 5 fall must-haves for this trend:

  • -Nylon trench coat
  • -Denim jumper
  • -Oversize men’s jacket
  • -Satchel bag
  • -Colors: Brown, black, and navy
