ACTIVISM-WEAR Rebellious Activewear: AW 2019-2020
In a period riddled with scandals and fake news, clothes start reflecting our most urgent issues through material choices, colour coding, shape formulation and text messages. The clothes themselves are rather basic and straightforward, expressing these trends in a subtle way through details, sizing and layering. Making space for communication. Thus activewear becomes activism, wearable to communicate and propagate what we believe in, and how we see the future: women wearing black, men wearing lace, juniors wearing waste, seniors wearing white; women asking for respect, men expressing tenderness, juniors fighting for our planet and seniors demanding peace.
