It’s been a week since Divergent hit theatres and clearly I’m still obsessed with the costumes from that film. I particularly loved the Dauntless ones! While it’s hard to change up leather jackets and make it more futuristic and original (The Mortal Instruments anyone? P.S. I still loved the movie.), here are some really interesting ideas that rethink the Dauntless wardrobe.
Original costume designs by Carlo Poggioli (Romeo and Juliet)
Dauntless: All-black clothes, tattoos, piercings, unnatural hair colors.
What I really liked were the (bullet proof?) vests the characters wore when they went out to the wall. (Geesh, I almost called them Tributes and then “the Wall” sounds like Game of Thrones!) So I’ve included some Pre-Fall 2014 and Fall 2014 runway looks that rethought the black ensemble.
