Australian fashion designer Ben Pollitt has introduced a new line of clothing inspired by the costumes in David Lynch’s 1984 movie Dune.
Pollit tells The Australian:
Garments in Pollitt’s favoured washed and treated leathers, silk georgettes and jersey fabrics had intricate panels and zippers in homage to the “second skin” space suits worn by characters in the film.
“The suits were a second skin to protect them from the elements,” Pollitt said. “They felt like extensions of their muscles and ribcages and I’ve applied those ideas to modern garments without making them too costumey.”
Pretty cool and strange. But what does Pollitt mean by “without making them too costumey” ?? Someone needs to tell him that they are, in fact, costumey.
