Style as Rebellion – The Durimels

Style as Rebellion Blog Web Banner

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.”

-Michael Bierut

    I had a ton of fun working on this style as editorial. Finding the right song to capture the essence of the shoot was difficult and rather time consuming, but the outcome was all worth it. I look forward to a continued working relationship with the Durimels.

    Fashion takes boldness and it is only when we rebel against societal norms do we find our style. When we are afraid we conform and become a wallflower. But when we rebel, we bloom in full color. I would wear this to school. Why, put fashion in a box and only wear this to work? Style is something we wear anywhere, anytime.

    Springing forward in fashionable sense! The style and boldness of the colors and prints in this post exemplifies the true essence of dapper. Spring is my favorite season because I believe it allows us guys to truly get creative with our wardrobe. We can rock a floral print or pastel just as well as any beautiful woman, and sometimes better. Nice post PCS, love what you guys are doing!

    Spring is upon us! The Antoinette Tie has a great floral pattern that will at least make me look and feel like it’s spring here in the ever-confused weather of Atlanta. My style must have from this editorial… Besides the guys’ shoes, I’m in love with loafers!

    Its interesting to see how they balance each other out. While both contain a lot of flare and pattern mixing one still seems more conservative and the other a little more expressive. Makes you wonder if that concept is line with their personalities and lifestyle as well!
