Dystopian Brutalist Outerwear by Martijn van Strien

Dystopian Brutalist Outerwear

The future may be bright, but it might also be very dark, says Martijn van Strien. He considered the worst-case scenario and came up with the ultimate back-to-basics collection for harsh conditions. Made with minimum cost and effort from a single piece of heavy-duty black tarpaulin, with only straight cuts and sealed seams. The styles are inspired by Brutalist architecture, giving this outerwear a linear, invincible look. The design says it all: brace yourself and be safe.
