People are flocking to watch Hulu鈥檚 The Handmaid鈥檚 Tale, a chillingly rendered tale of a dystopian future adapted from Canadian author Margaret Atwood鈥檚 book. A lot of plot 鈥 though the novel was published in 1985 鈥 runs eerily parallel to current events. And aside from shaping up to be a hit series, the show is also inspiring fashion as well.

鈥淭he way that people are dressed in the story indicates who they are and what their purpose is. We explore similar themes in our collections by examining the way people are expected to dress.鈥 The Handmaid鈥檚 Tale鈥檚 costume designer Anne Crabtree used color in a big way throughout the show. 鈥淭here鈥檚 a real psychological approach to color in terms of where the colors lie,鈥 Crabtree told Vanity Fair. 鈥淭here鈥檚 less and less power as you go down the color spectrum, except with the color red鈥 That is by design from the book.鈥

New York-based label Vaquera is collaborating with Hulu on a collection revolving around the series, including the uniform worn by the Handmaids: a long red cape and a white bonnet. 鈥淗ulu approached us to work on this project because we discuss similar themes with our own work. The novel has been an inspiration since the beginning of Vaquera because [of] its use of visual language to discuss poignant social issues. We are excited to work on something so groundbreaking and timely,鈥 the brand said.

Vaquera also decided to capitalize on the color with a number of red looks in the collaboration. The four-person design collective shared a sneak peek on Instagram, writing 鈥渆xcited to announce we are working on a capsule collection for Hulu鈥檚 new show, The Handmaid鈥檚 Tale.鈥 The collection also includes a red sweatshirt with 鈥淒on鈥檛 Let the Bastards Grind You Down鈥 written in French.

The show鈥檚 star Elisabeth Moss posed behind the phrase written on the bathroom mirror at the LA premiere. She wrote in the caption: 鈥淔ound my favorite phrase at our LA premiere. Don鈥檛 let the bastards grind you down鈥 First 3 eps now streaming on @hulu. #HandmaidsTale #huluandpanic.鈥

The collection will be revealed in full in June during a performance piece.
