River Island Design Forum is a unique form that showcases up and coming designers in the fashion industry.

This "Fashion film," from River Island introduces its first ever menswear collection (courtesy of Tom Lipop) by making clothing the last form of self-identity in an otherwise post-apocalyptic world.

To which I say, if you're the last dude on earth, you've got more important things to consider beyond whether or not your pea coat matches your handkerchief.
