Discover Underage‘s Spring Summer 2019 Lucid Dreams Collection inspired by absurdity and transformation, and the ‘Club Kid’ era that flourished during the late 80s and early 90s, presented on Tuesday September 18th, during the last day of the recently finished London Fashion Week.
“The Lucid Dream that UNDERAGE envisions is one where members of society are prisoners to their own notions of identity and much of the collection is based on Erik Erikson’s ‘Four stages of the identity crisis’. While distressed denim may be ubiquitous, the collection approaches the fabric in a new manner. Denim mixed with shirting and tailored fabrics, embroidery and bright colours inspires new possibilities in the distressed denim trend. With new ways of manipulating fabrics, UNDERAGE are considering if the future of fashion can enhance consumer’s liberation from identity categorisation imposed on them, by themselves.
Empowering womenswear with an androgynous feel, ‘transformation’ is an important word to UNDERAGE this season, not only because of the collection’s desire to disrupt the conventional way that women feel in clothes but also for the way that the collection deconstructs day-wear and recreates it again with an aspect of it completely reimagined.“
