The Geeky Baju Project is a series of Southeast Asian garment designs inspired by literature, video games, and films. In this series, I explore the intersection of popular culture with traditional garments as a means of storytelling. More at http://charisloke.com/geekybaju.
ROBOTS AND MONSTERS
(Based on Pacific Rim by Guillermo del Toro)
ALL SUITED UP
Get down to business in a leather and pleated chiffon ensemble.
Fashion meets function for the forward-looking pilot.
Pilot 20,000 tons of awesome with all the pockets you need on a crushed silk bolero.
Wearable LEDs are incorporated into a layered baju kurung for a controllable effect.
Destroy fashion fads in a soft asymmetrical hoodie with wearable LED strips.
Wear it at home, on the bus, at school – when you’re a monster no one can tell you what to do.
CAPE CALM & CHASM
Stay focused and warm in a thermal-blocking cape and ombre scarf.
Keep out the cold and rain during the yearly monsoons.
