When the world ends, where will you be … but more importantly, what will you wear? Dressing for disaster: not exactly what they meant when they said to wear something to suit any occasion, now is it? Better than just bullet-proof, this body-molded Kevlar and breathable neoprene ‘Urban Security Suit’ packs one helluva an aesthetic punch – on top of stopping anything short of an atomic bomb.
Simple whites, grays, browns, dull greens and blues let the accents speak for themselves in this unusual top by Dutch conceptual clothing designer Tim Smit: a bulky side pocket that lets you pack a pistol that is easy to grab on the go (and be intentionally obvious about it at the same time) as well as a handy pullover hood complete with an integrated chemical weapon-resistant gas mask. Zombie proof? Maybe not, but it’ll help you look cool when the apocalypse comes.
In short: this crazy creation is an extreme design crafted with any situation in mind, but just as stylish as it is end-of-world ready – a form-fitting creation that will certainly stand out when you are one of the last men standing. However, while it might protect you in a war zone it is likely to be seen as terrorist-ready attire in more tame settings, so beware when you wear it. OK, so it might not be the kind of hooded sweatshirt you will find this fall at the Diesel store, but if the doomsayers are right: perhaps it should be!
