Once Upon a Future, the world has fallen to dystopia. The rules that once kept the world in order no longer apply and creatures that lie somewhere between aliens and androids are now living amongst human beings.
Gentle Monster presents a new experimental project featuring a fashion film and an exclusive 2018 capsule collection. Titled, “Once Upon a Future,” this new project invites you to explore our imaginings of a world where humans and unidentifiable creatures coexist. This 4-part film series captures momentary interactions between strange neighbours as they navigate their everyday life.
Gentle Monster’s 2018 capsule collection, “Once Upon a Future,” strives to evoke the paradoxical feeling of remembering the future. In abandon of tradition, Gentle Monster rethinks the way in which eyewear is typically worn and made. Taking a radically different approach, this collection presents a selection of new styles that challenge the boundary between reality and fantasy.
