Yellow Safety Belt in Fashion
“Life doesn’t play fair” was the motto of Killing Weekend on the 23rd edition of 080 Barcelona Fashion days.
The Zero Year collection speaks to the multiple adversities involved in starting one’s path towards a specific goal in life. External problems, ties and obligations can make it difficult to achieve a dream or purpose. On the runway tight belts, long bondages, split-face make-up, hidden faces and other chaotic motifs express the feelings of today’s generation.
The iconic yellow airplane belt was leveraged in this show, representing a symbol of the safety commonly seen on airplanes. Killing Weekend is adopting this symbol of safety to represent the freedom-oriented life most working class people strive to achieve.
