OAMC, the brand that likes to set fire to its sunglasses and fire machine guns at its shoes, unveiled its Fall/Winter 2016 collection today in Paris. Rather than fire-and-brimstone violence, though, the brand is instead appropriating militaristic motifs as a symbol of peace.

An olive-heavy palette, bomber jackets, army knits, combat boots and pea coats keep the military theme going - although they're contradicted with peaceful dove symbols, which appear throughout the collection via intarsia knits, prints and moulded metal.

This being 2016 and an OAMC collection, many of the garments are executed with a dizzying array of modern technologies - compression cording, paracord detailing and double-faced technical fabrics are all utilized. Most interesting are the several swollen, heavily padded outerwear pieces that look like appropriated military-grade sleeping bags. Dog tags and a smattering of camo-inspired patterns round off the collection, which finds peaceful, day-to-day utility in things that were once used for war.

Stay tuned for more coverage from Paris Fashion Week and in the meantime, catch up with all the goings on from Milan.
