Vexed Generation: protective fashion

Parka

PARKA:From the 1997 Autumn Winter collection made from Black ballistic Nylon[the same material used in bullet proof vests]

Vexed Generation are a fashion label that were founded in 1994 by Adam Thorpe and Joe Hunter. Their garment designs each address issues of air pollution, urban CCTV surveillance and civil liberties whilst catering for a performance lifestyle. Specifically utilising respiratory protection, and performance fabrics which are waterproof, breathable, fire retardant and knife retardant.

A quote from Vexed Generation’s 1997 season statement on their archive website:

“A Vexed garment will not clean the air
A Vexed garment will not protect public privacy
A Vexed garment will not change uncivil/civil legislation
A Vexed garment may improve your quality of life.”
