UNDERAGE's AW19 collection explores the blurry lines of human sexuality and gender amongst young people. The collection is inspired in part by cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show and its impact on the sexual revolution movement in 1970s Britain. Shapes of garments that modern consumers are familiar with, such as t-shirts and knitwear, are deconstructed to blur the lines of their own perception of ‘normal’. Meanwhile, UNDERAGE’s signature graphics explore femininity and sensuality.

Inspired by the ‘Club Kid’ era that flourished during the late 80s and early 90s, the UNDERAGE SS19 collection is a nod to absurdity and transformation. It celebrates a much-loved culture that is currently repeating itself within the youth psyche and makes it relevant by mixing these iconic ideals with modern casual wear.
The collection is titled ‘Lucid Dreams’ in which there is a psychedelic and vibrant undertone to each look, yet the garments have a pop sensibility. Quiet sexual images can be discovered within the prints and bold colours, they have been subtly placed there to encourage the wearers to embrace their inner desires and set themselves free.
