Camouflage (fr. Camouflage – “camouflage”) – camouflage coloring, used to reduce the visibility of people, weapons, equipment, structures by breaking the silhouette of the product or object. Camouflage is also a protective color of animals, resulting from the adaptation to the environment. Some species, such as chameleon, octopus, squid or flounder, can change the color of the body to the color of the situation.
The field military uniform began to be purposefully sewn from a protective camouflage color fabric in the late XIX – early XX century. At the end of the 19th century, British colonial troops in India adopted the khaki color, meaning “the color of dust” in Persian. The khaki color form successfully showed itself on the battlefield in the South African war against the Boers of 1899-1902, therefore it was soon adopted by the Russians and other troops and widely used during the First World War.
In the late 1960s, being common in the US military, camouflage came into civilian clothing as a civil protest against wars. Wearing military uniforms on the streets of the city was to draw the attention of the population to what they would feel if there were military operations in their city and soldiers were pacing. Fashion quickly disappeared, but was resurrected in the 1980s, gaining unprecedented distribution in the early 1990s during the Gulf War.
The fashion industry began to produce pseudo-war colors of softer fabrics, to imitate accessories under the insignia. John Galliano, Anna Sui, Commes des Garsons transferred the features of military uniforms to patterns of skirts and dresses. Camouflage firmly entrenched in sportswear.
