THE EVOLUTION OF ARMOUR IN HEAVEN

After the breakdown of social and industrial stability, manufacture of anything not seen as vital for human survival (food/shelter) shut down. The general public - civilians - stayed indoors, often sealed in with makeshift barricades of old furniture and dismantled cars. Those not willing to lay passive and reclusive began rebuilding the concept of  ‘apparel’.

Distances between refuge was wide and unsafe so non civilians built crews of motorbike operatives and rear seat riders for carrying equipment & weaponry.

Members of the bike gangs needed clothing for long distance, high speed travel, excursions, recon missions and haulage.

They began to build raw future wears, first finding/stealing work gear, army surplus items and various uniform and combined them with industrial materials and fantastical yet functional fabrics to create world ready hybrids.



The original garments (all 1/1) were labelled fossils and archived for supervised viewings in converted, derelict palaces, churches and mosques. Viewers would need identification and invitation from an initiated biker or figure of the TSE movement for entry. Entry was regulated by clone like, hard light, hologramatic figures called Bonemen who lay guard on the entrances of the viewing palaces.

Through garment sales, film screenings and viewing ticket sales the riders moved forward with the production of AIH in the form of The Spectacular Uniform. A mystical collection of adverse conditions gear.

The uniform (TSU) was a refined range of items that best assisted the non civilian travellers passage through ranging terrain, social interaction, self defence and revolution.

The clothing exists within, and responds to a world of greed, oppression and injustice using both up-cycled & luxury materials, tech produced detailing & hardware, an industrial aesthetic and future finishing.
