This 90s video game-inspired fashion is hellish – and I'm here for it

We've seen a lot of fashion brands turn to the digital space, releasing virtual clothing for games and the metaverse, but what about if the relationship went the other way around and they took inspiration from gaming?  Well, one designer has conceived a concept for fashions inspired by the likes of classic 90s horror game Resident Evil.

Alfred Pietroni's A Granted Wish capsule is a tribute to the low-resolution but deeply evocative graphics of the N64 and early Playstation. His designs hark back to a time when video games featured characters and outfits that somehow looked amazingly futuristic despite the primitive polygon graphics available, and the results are absolutely terrifying (if you're looking for contemporary gaming inspiration, see our pick of the best PS5 games).
