Turkish denim mill Orta and London-based The Vintage Showroom continue their futuristic journey with a Spring/Summer ’18 update to “Future Hunter Gatherer,” a post-apocalyptic capsule collection that re-imagines vintage silhouettes in new fabrications.

The mill presented the new project last week at Kingpins Amsterdam.

Orta debuted the concept last fall with a collection based on heavy weight fabrics and a dark and moody color palette. The S/S 18 collection combines light and mid-tone blues with lightweight, layer-friendly fabrics with performance benefits. The collection was produced entirely using Orta fabrics in Istanbul.

The collection’s creative directors, The Vintage Showroom Co-Founders Douglas Gunn and Roy Lucket, culled inspiration from various themes from Native American culture and early 20th century aviation, to British workwear and Japan’s Samurai class. The overall look is nomadic and utilitarian.

Standout items include a hoodie with laser cutouts that mimic the pattern and texture of a vintage fishing net, a pleated trench coat with a pouch for a parachute (or backpack) and a convertible poncho inspired by a tent.
