Dubstep fashion inspired by Burials "Untrue"...

debate, appreciation, interviews, reviews (events or releases), videos, radio shows

Hey there,

"Spiegel" (similar to the american "Times" here in Germany) did a feature about fashion, youth culture and the symbiosis with (electronic) music. They sent out Burials "Untrue" album to several fashion designers and asked them to create a look for the music. Interesting results, i'd say:

this is really quite funny- not the best album to choose on which to base fashion designs. Interesting though.

:yawn:

I could design better than that. For a start, Burial's music is downbeat, dark and moody. So... that should be reflected in the clothing.

Well, its not my style but it looks ok to me. You see a lot of people dressed like that here in Berlin. I would not say that somebody is a "twat" only because he dresses like that.

@dvnt: I know what you mean... For me the ideal Burial consument looks like this:

There are comments from the designers, why they decided to do it like that, but i'm too lazy to translate it right now.

Shoreditch twat - http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=shoreditch+twat

Of course people can wear what they want....even if it makes them look a bit like a nathan barley extra....

I think it's interesting at least. And it's hard to say whether or not it's "accurate" because it's such a subjective topic.

Can't see anything revelatory in flouro grey and electro hair.

Browns and greens hide gravy stains better

Burial is a dirty old hoody, some jeans and some reebok workouts.
