UNDERAGE’S SS19 collection, entitled ‘Lucid Dreams’, really encapsulated the psychedelic dreamy freedom that the late 80s/early 90s ‘Club Kid’ era inspired through clothing. This was a time of liberation and rebellion.
When one wakes up in a dream to the potential of lucidity, one may question their sense of self and identity, which is exactly the feeling the collection evokes. While distressed denim may be ubiquitous, the collection approaches the fabric in a new manner, with denim mixed with shirting and tailored fabrics, embroidery and bright colours inspiring new possibilities in the distressed denim trend.
With new ways of manipulating fabrics, UNDERAGE are considering whether the future of fashion can enhance consumers’ liberation from identity categorisation imposed on them, by themselves. This was an amazing mixture of androgynous items, deconstructing daywear and recreating it with a fresh and lively imagination.
