TERRIBLE MOVEMENT - DEATH ALLOVER / KAOS MAGICK
Sreetwear brand Terrible Movement, a Talk Casuals favourite, return with a new unisex collection titled DEATH ALLOVER / KAOS MAGICK.
If you've not familiar with the TM brand, it was founded in London in 2012, before temporarily relocating to Kreuzberg in Berlin. Since mid-2014, Terrible Movement has been based in Hackney, London. The brand stocks with a number of retailers in the UK, Europe and North America, including Urban Outfitters and has a legion of notable supporters, including Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Alana Haim.
Their latest collection is showcased in a glitchy lookbook and a forthcoming fashion film, directed by Katharine Cowell and shot on location in artist Maciej Urbanek’s Hackney studio. I always get so excited for Terrible Movement look books - they always go against the grain with it and the team really aren't bothered what everyone else is doing within the industry and I absolutely love that about them. The collection is modelled by Dazed and i-D favourite Jake Lucas, face of Dior Homme's ‘Notes of a Day’ campaign, alongside Elite London’s hauntingly beautiful new face, Anastasija.
The uniform for what looks like a digital Apocalypse has a bold and controlled palette of red, white and black and features placement printing across a range of jersey tops, bottoms and outerwear, heralding a long-overdue call for the death of all over prints! TM solidly getting behind my feeling that you really can have too much of a good thing! The collection also aligns the brand with the growing movement for accessible, genderless fashion, something I'm also an advocate for. Yeah you're getting it - I really really like what this brand are about!
Speaking about their new lookbook and collection, co-founder Tersha Willis said: “We’re genuinely in it to change things. We’re continuing to create accountable, premium streetwear and we don't give a shit if it’s not press or high-street friendly. We focused on the contrasting themes of parity and disparity, proximity and distance. Contrast is evident in our colour palette, but our shapes and pieces break down the pre-determined notion of gender-based fashion to form a flowing, coherent collection.”
Boasting a bright, bold and bolshy colour palette on complimentary basic jersey pieces, keep this collection simple but a real head turner.
