Warriors of Downpour City

People’s behavior in the rain inspired Anne van Galen’s Design Academy Eindhoven graduate project entitled ‘Warriors of Downpour City’.  Anne told dezeen, ‘How they move, react + function. I spent hours just looking at people in the rain.’

Each piece, made of silicone, evolved from a different posture when huddling in a cold, wet environment resulting in a range of restricted movements like in pic 2 below.  There are also domed pieces, with both clear + frosty appearances able to deflect water away from the wearers body.  Meanwhile, there are these pretty cool platform sandals to walk above water puddles.

Rain or not, a lot of these pieces would look great worn alone or over items-wouldn’t pic 1 below look great inside a fur vest or over a mod-style dress?
