– By Teresa Greenfeld –
In a post apocalyptic world, one’s wardrobe must be chosen with care; presuming, of course, that chaos has ensued, and protecting oneself is the highest of priorities. Or at least that’s how Preen designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi envision the end of the world Inspired by Derek Jarmon’s post apocalyptic cult film Jubilee, Thornton and Bregazzi sent out sharply tailored silhouettes in a palate of red black and white. Strategically placed zippers replaced seams in body-flattering bias cuts, and yet even with their apocalyptic inspiration, the collection remained ultimately wearable – even subtly feminine. This femininity – by way of sheer silks, full skirts, cascading hems, and pleated bustles – was inspired by Richard Avedon’s 1949 photos of Dorian Leigh, according to the designers.
