Military garment design has been influencing fashion at an increasing rate over the years. Classic renditions of flight suits, MA-1 Jackets, and bombers from early Raf Simons and Maison Margiela collections are some of the most sought after pieces to date. In the ever-evolving landscape of fashion, designers continue to push boundaries and offer up new renditions of classic military pieces.

 

Many are doing this in a literal sense, as brands are taking vintage military garments, repurposing, and rebranding them to be “new.” Others are only pulling inspiration from the silhouettes, and modernizing them with slim fits, prints, and different fabrics. Readymade has done a bit of both; they take old military canvas from duffel bags, tents, etc., and repurpose them into new flight jackets, bombers, overnight bags, and novelty items.

 

The inspiration is unsurprising, as the military plays a significant role in the contemporary era. OAMC realized this in their latest collection and decided to juxtapose the narrative of their collection with the violent history of the military. Replacing bombs with olive branches, a symbol of peace, and incorporating doves into their designs, they attempt to soften the harsh realities that come with militaristic endeavors.

You Cut Me Off: Off-White Video Lookbook

From the gritty inception of Pyrex Vision to his most recent collection, titled “You Cut Me Off,” Virgil Abloh has yet to pigeonhole himself. Each collection proves an audacious adventure into numerous themes, seemingly building upon one another. Abloh has said that he has yet to reach what he deems “good work.” He continues to push the envelope, introducing new styles, medias, and mediums, in an attempt to reach that summit.

 

This season continues with classic diagonal graphics strewn across shirts, jackets, and accessories. Abloh drives his stock upward, introducing expertly aged and distressed jackets and jeans, as well as drapey hoodies and pullovers.
