Military fashion may have been big for some time now but deduce what? It’s embryonic. Ancient warlords and kings have stormed the thoughts of the fashion world, and rudiments of military history have been reinterpreted with an up to date often advanced – twirl. A little wilder, a little fiercer, the new military brings ancient civilizations and their warriors to life for this 2010 fashion trend.

Future warrior: what is it

A mixture of the military fashion trend and the more savage side of the tribal fashion trend, the new warrior leaves the formal and festooned style of military detailing behind. The ancient world is at the center of this trend – from ancient Rome, to Egypt, to the Celtic warrior woman. To bring the look into 2010, the past elements are modernized or melded with innovative twists.

Elements of the future warrior trend

·    Metal plating
·    Tunics; especially in leather
·    Chain-mail inspired detailing
·    Tribal inspired motifs

The warrior fashion trend: how to wear it

This isn’t the sort of trend where regulations should be laid down; it’s open to construal and rich with option. It’s not planned to be taken too factually either, and works best when an outfit gives the feeling of some fundamental fierceness rather than the overt look of a costume. So again no strict rules, but some pointers:
·    Be creative, be confident; wear it with conviction.
·    Mix some of the elements listed above in with more glamorous pieces. Sequins as a perfect example can give a look that’s modern mixed with metal.
·    Mix ultra-feminine with tough warriors. For example soft, flowing fabric against sharp metal plating or studded straps.
·    Invest in accessories that will give any outfit a warrior edge; like studded leather belts, new and edgier takes on the gladiator sandal, jewelry based on ancient cultures.

Fashion trends complimentary to ‘warrior clothes’

·    With anything warrior inspired be sure to not overlook leather. It can add a hard edge or historical authenticity
·    Look to the tribal fashion trend for inspiration. But remember that in 2010, the warrior trend is more Dark Ages than bright kaftan. Thus look to the detailing, particularly in tribal accessories and jewelry.
·    If you’re wearing warrior inspired clothing during the colder autumn (Fall) / winter months consider pairing your pieces with ripped tights for an edgy look.
·    If you’re wearing a tribal piece that is just a top and not a full dress or outfit, consider pairing it with short shorts or boy shorts. Particularly good here would be to wear them with khaki colored shorts in the vein of ‘Westerner gone native’.

Styles & who has designed them

Sass & Bide duo Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton mixed tribal and Amazonian influences into their profoundly detailed Spring 2010 assortment. Some uses of metal plating – like the label’s armored leggings – were definitely innovative in feel. Others seemed to conjure up the spirits of wild Amazonian warriors, with breastplate-like detailing and strong womanly undertones.

If Amazon warriors were forging battles in the imaginations of Sass & Bide, then Tin Hinan was sortie the thoughts of Todd Lynn. Mixed with Lynn’s trademark darkness, giant horned shoulders ensued for a captivating and inflexible take on the modern warrior trend. Lynn cited the legendary Tuareg queen as his motivation.
Dontatella Versace’s vision of the warrior woman was much more romantic. Metallic detail on the busts of dresses was subtly breast-plate inspired, but from there cascaded into flowing pastel fabrics; part knight, part maiden.
Balmain’s take had its root in the Ancient Roman soldier; with tunic dresses, drapes of fabric, and shoulder epaulettes.

Balenciaga’s urban warrior takes her battle to the streets with gladiator tunics, plating, and makeup that hint at urban war paint.
A fascinating mix of deconstructed shapes and simple fabrics were worked into Rick Owens’ latest assortment. But don’t let that fool you – the ancient warriors lie within loincloth-style skirts and spiked gold cuffs. Meanwhile the pale skin, khol eyeliner, and slicked back hair are a tryst with ancient Egyptian history.

Rodarte’s Woad warrior is perhaps the fiercest of all; with tattered fabrics, interwoven leather, and tribal body-paint all bringing an exclusive mix of prehistoric culture and dystopian future to the runway.
