We want to tell you about one more style in fashion. This style is steampunk. And steampunk walking canes are also worth of your attention.
Steampunk is a retrofuturistic subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Although its literary origins are sometimes associated with the cyberpunk genre, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century British Victorian era or the American "Wild West", in a future during which steam power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. However, steampunk and neo-Victorian are different in that the neo-Victorian movement does not extrapolate on technology while technology is a key aspect of steampunk. (Wikipepia)
Steampunk walking canes
Steampunk is a hot fashion trend that marries elements of 19th-century fashion (i.e. when most things were powered by steam) with technological features like gears and pipes. Walking canes are a favorite accessory of those who live and love the steampunk style. Whether you’re interested in dressing up in an elaborate steampunk costume for a party or just to learn a little more about this curious trend, we’re here to give you a breakdown on steampunk fashion!
Steampunk fashion is influenced heavily by the Industrial Revolution in the early 19th century. During this time, more factories were built to produce goods and machinery was introduced to reduce the number of laborers required to keep up with production demands. Steam-powered machinery became the order of the day at this time and steam engines became common in mining settings as well as factories.
Walking canes and elegant walking sticks paired with top hats were a popular fashion accessory among gentlemen during the Industrial Revolution and throughout the 19th century. As such, walking canes have become a staple of steampunk fashion. Steampunk walking canes tend to feature intricate designs featuring cogs, gears, bolts, and pipes. Steampunk canes are meant to be evocative of the century that inspired them but are decidedly modern in their edgy appearance.
As the Steampunk trend continues to grow on the alternative scene, it’s clear that this trend is here to stay. Perfect for conventions, costume parties, or simply for your own amusement, Steampunk fashion is a world of its own, begging to be explored. Steampunk is slowly inching its way into the mainstream through popular entertainment, so be sure to get in ahead of the crowd and secure your spot as a steampunk trendsetter!
