Australia – Faceless Youth Pre-Apocalypse (FYP-A) is a new kids streetwear label created for 2–14-year-olds that seeks to take a politicised stance against the current state of society.
A reflection of our increasingly Dislocated World, the collection, which includes hoodies, t-shirts and tracksuit bottoms as well as the more unusual addition of air pollution masks, features slogans such as ‘We are our only hope’ and ‘Not suitable for children’. The entire collection is deliberately unisex to encourage children to think outside of traditional gender binaries.
‘Besides our background in streetwear, its inclusivity and history in progressive thinking played a role in our decision to start making it for kids,’ says co-founder Warran Wright. ‘As we see it kids today are some of the most aware and forward-thinking people yet, who may or may not want to continue wearing clothing informed by gender norms, celebrity culture and the like. Children are just as diverse as adults, after all.’
