Post-Apocalyptic Anthropocene Collection

Fall/Winter 2023-2024

With her new collection, designer Anna Yang continues her exploration of the โ€œpost-humanโ€ concept with a post-apocalyptic twist. The ANNAKIKI Autumn/Winter 2023-2024 collection, entitled โ€œPost-Apocalyptic Anthropocene,โ€ imagines how humans will come together as a community to support each other in a world ravaged by chaos and destruction.

Drawing inspiration from cyberpunk and wasteland punk elements, Yangโ€™s collection features a futuristic armor for the โ€œpost-humanโ€ – a concept described by some scholars as an โ€œevolved humanโ€ or โ€œtranshuman.โ€ The armor, which features the brandโ€™s signature 3D wavy sleeves and a composite metallic fabric, allows for many possibilities to transform the body. The brandโ€™s consistent liquid metallic fabric gives the armor a fantastical shine, like a futuristic warrior. The deliberately burned, soiled, and hand-painted dirty prints reflect the designerโ€™s portrayal of an anti-utopian environment, and the rebellious and fearless human resistance against the harsh post-apocalyptic environment as well as the artificial intelligence that has become self-aware under the brutality of technology.

In addition to the armor, the collection features a collaboration with Italian accessories brand AnGostura, which often draws inspiration from ancient occult and indigenous cultures to create imaginative โ€œbody sculptures.โ€ AnGostura has created unique glass and metal earrings for ANNAKIKIโ€™s post-human legion, a fusion of fragile glass and hard metal, a reflection of human nature struggling with crisis; fragile yet indestructible.

โ€œWhen human beings cease to be indifferent to the pull of profit, and the purpose and only purpose of desire is survival, then we will abandon our egoism and come together as a multitude to fight against the unknown and turbulent world,โ€ says Anna Yang.
