Winter is coming and night is growing longer here in the northern hemisphere. While nature is in full dormancy, people retreat back to the “cave” for the comfort and warmth of the tribe. Inspired by a modern version of those caves - the streets of London in a dystopian present-future - our 2022/23 ‘Avant Apocalypse’ lookbook celebrates an urban style that is dark, subversive and sophisticated.
The Avant Apocalypse aesthetic is expressed through minimal wardrobe staples such as tank tops, leggings or jackets updated with asymmetric cuts, slashes of exposed skin, layering and cut-outs. This style is characterised by neutral maximalism, wearing pieces “the wrong way”, lots of deconstruction, and slashing of fabrics in neutral tones. Think clashing textures, exposed skin, but all tied together in a cohesive colour palette. Pieces that expose the architecture of the garment and reveal normally concealed elements of the body. This aesthetic is about reclaiming the body, using layers and unconventional silhouettes in order to express body-conscious and constructed sexuality, all on the wearer’s own terms. Deconstructing, cutting, repurposing, and upcycling pieces, emphasising the body with skin-revealing cutouts and curve-hugging fabrics.
This lookbook showcases Psylo’s current RE:imagined collection, which is all about going back to the roots. Awakening the “old skool” spirit of Psylo, this collection celebrates the utility-traveller style of comfortable, yet stylish clothing. Outfits that go further, so you can live, work, dance - all without changing your clothes. This unique style is complimented by the other-worldly body adornments from the queen of darkness - Costume Therapy. Her exquisite symbols of identity were designed to help you survive an apocalypse. These articulations on humanoid shapes complement the Psylo look seamlessly. Making the perfect match for the Avant Apocalypse style.
