Marie-Elsa Batteux Flahault present us her Graduation project. Entitled “WE ARE ON THE EDGE” the project was inspired by the Preppers’ mindset.

A Prepper is a person who is actively preparing for the End of the World. The movement is expending and gaining popularity while disastrous threats have multiplied since 2000.

This project is a projection in a dystopian world where prepping becomes trendy and gets integrated in the design DNA of everyday life products. The jacket serves as an illustration of this prediction; a fashionable outfit suitable for everyday use but which also possess the features needed during a doomsday scenario.

Be a Prepper under cover…
