This time I'm in the mood for a more boyish yet a futuristic style.
I bought this army bomber jacket (thrifted) a long time ago and I almost never wear it - I simply have no idea how should I mix this jacket with. So I take a look inside my closet and then found this Hardware abstract legging (which I already wore in my previous post) - here comes the idea of mix & match. At last I mix this army bomber jacket & the abstract legging to create a boyish, anti-beauty, & futuristic style. I'm so aware that this style is far from the word "pretty, gorgeous, chic, cute" or whatsoever. In fact, this outfit & the photo overall show a more murky and bleak mood with a stark contrasts. This entire mood composition reminds me of a concept: "dystopia".
What is dystopia? Dystopia is the opposite of utopia: a society which is characterized by human misery, over-crowd population, oppression, disease, and other bad stuff. Sometimes, I always wondering what will this earth and our society looks like in the future? There are two stand regarding this: the optimists and the pessimist. Which one are you? In my opinion, if we as a citizen of this world don't care about our nature, if we don't have a will to change the society, if we keep construct buildings instead of preserving the naturals, if we keep wasting the source energy (such as fuel and electricity), if we keep doing what we are doing right now: I believe the future will be more likely to be a dystopia. Because our lifestyle right now will determine what our life will be in the future. Of course we don't want to leave this earth in a horrible condition for the next generation, right?
This post was highly influence by a dystopian-futuristic movie,"The Book of Eli" (2010), starring Denzel Washington (who wore an army jacket there) & Mila Kunis.
And here's some of army-theme inspiration from runways:
