Style as Rebellion – The Durimels
Inspired by Michael Bierut’s essay, Style: An Inventory, we return for a long awaited third installment featuring the The Durimels, Jibril and Jalan. We diverge from our original three part series to further explore Style as Inventory. Set in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, two brothers don floral textures and materiality shaped by masculine silhouettes. These gentleman emerge appearing as polar opposites yet are paralleled by their complementary pieces. Looking through Beirut’s lens, we find ourselves searching for the stylistic qualities these two fashion bloggers have. They are free from the confines of habitual design to delve into the philosophies of experimentation, re-purposing, and anti-style. They are style rebels.
“How to break out. If you’re right handed, draw with your left hand. Determine the most sensible, practical thing to do, and then do the exact opposite. Pick a color at random. Force yourself to use the typeface you hate the most. Take on a problem that you’ve never faced before. Overturn the game board and make up new rules based on where the pieces fall.”
