SUPER Heroes // Super FASHION

Hyper reality , Graphic stimulation and Super emotions from glamorous to outrageous . It is to see something visually so powerful that it takes away reality from us ,and  playing an extreme  metaphor for fashion because it shares an obsession with the body, its identity and transformation “The concept of dual identity”. Its  desire , emotion and  attaining those super powers to make the impossible, possible.

We can augment reality and see the depth of the same very thought to build a new Idea. Super Heroes such as Iron Man , Super man although take place in an alternate history of Edwardian earth, the moment of the “break” for which their existence is necessary, it is an alternate history to be different from ours. Here is a research on visual power of forming super fashion looks. It is more of  a Symbolic and metaphorical association with superheroes , that escape into your fantasy. Not just superman or  Wonder Woman’s satin stars and golden bracelets to Batman’s brooding cape and mask  , but augment into something which looks powerful fantasy,  the style of superheroes’ dress has influenced both street wear and high street fashion . Here are an  assortment of  some super Visuals in Fashion.

  1. Reblogged this on Sustain-Able 余 : Arts & Culture ♥Cecilia and commented:
    I really enjoyed this blog and I wanted to add: “Hyper-reality” is ALSO the process by which society appropriates what is essentially counter-culture and markets it to the Main-stream in the hope of encouraging our “Faith in Fakes”….a beautiful semiotic analysis written by Umberto Eco.

    I encourage anyone interested in this phenomena of the Accelerated consumption of Culture by reading the book : “Faith in Fakes” by Umberto Eco.

    I love fashion but fashion is ALWAYS my slave and NEVER my Master!

    Enjoy the Creativity…but Mr.Eco, thank you for saying that “Art and Artists” are convenient categorised into a box called “Priceless” so that society do not feel the need to deal with us in hyper-reality since Art is the antithesis of the “Faith in Fakes” culture. That was very insightful and as an artist, I thank you for your academic depth.
