AMC’s “Into the Badlands” has always stood out for its stunning costumes, which not just define the various clans at war within this post-apocalyptic universe, but set the show apart as a visual feast.
Costume designer Giovanni Lipari joined “Badlands” for its second season, and according to his official bio the challenge of the series was a welcome one: “The combination of styles had to be completely restyled and reimagined for the show. I had the real freedom of getting any reference from all of humanity: a freedom that seemed to be too large and varied to be synthesized purposefully.”
In the following gallery, check out Lipari’s original sketches for some of Season 3’s most iconic looks, accompanied by the final product as it appeared on screen.
Seasons 1 and 2 of “Into the Badlands” are streaming now on Netflix. The first half of Season 3 can be watched at amc.com.
