Following the release of its FW17 collection, London’s Tourne de Transmission returns with its SS18 line, as the brand emphasizes the lack of transparency within politics and media, by adding layers of transparent materials to its notable offerings such as trench coats and other outerwear.
Further highlighting sociopolitical concerns, deconstructed elements are evident on garments to reference divisions in society. As the official TDT statement also shared, “We tend to look at history for references in order to gain a greater perspective on how current situations may progress. But do we really understand our ability to make independent decisions and inform change for the better?”
While the brand utilizes contemporary fashion to express its opinion on the current world state, the label also aims to spread a message with its own analysis through these new offerings.
“Politics and politicians in particular seem to not mind borrowing from the past and blatantly set out manifestos that are repackaged ideals. We are made to feel that we are progressing when we are not. There is a layer, a veneer on things that we are not meant to see through.”
