‘Dystopia Lives’ was the title of Liam Hodges’ AW17 menswear collection showcased in London during LFW:M. The show, which had an other-worldly look and essence to it, had strong influences from dystopian fiction and hinted at the distinctive A Clockwork Orange aesthetic, one of the best-known of the genre. One print, which was featured, was inspired by Total Recall’s, Mary the triple breasted sex worker. Looking at things “through a different lens” as Hodges explains, allowed the collection to exceed expectations and remain fresh while drawing from the past. Using style, as with sub-cultures, to “find yourself and your people”.
