Funny or Die gets into the fashion game -- VIDEO

Posted on

Funny Or Die The Occasional

Forget ruffles and floral prints, the hottest spring trends are dumpster tuxedos, front capes, and arm hair.

The latest issue of The Occasional — the iPad magazine from humor website Funny or Die — pokes fun at the fashion industry with its Spring Fashion Preview, featuring cover boy Danny McBride.

Comedians Hannibal Buress, Natasha Leggero and Moshe Kasher model tongue-in-cheek pieces like front capes, Rite Aid plastic bags and extreme arm hair, while McBride keeps it classy in this season’s must-have — the “tuxedo you found in the dumpster.” Listed as a combination of Dior jacket and pants, a Hugo Boss shirt, Men’s Warehouse vest and an off-brand bow tie (Price? Free. Where to buy? A dumpster.) the ensemble evokes “that vintage look that will always be in style.” Even better: “Each bullet hole tells a story, especially if that story is, ‘Some guy was shot in this tux.'”

Is this a sign of more style content to come from Funny or Die?

The humor site recently posted She Said, She Said, the latest short film from Co, a clothing line created by film producer Stephanie Danan and screenwriter Justin Kern. Directed by Stuart Blumberg — who earned an Oscar nomination for his original screenplay for 2010’s The Kids Are All Right — the label’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection short tells the story of a lesbian couple (Marisa Tomei and Elodie Bouchez) on the brink of divorce as they sit down with a mediator (David Wain) to divide up their most prized possessions. The film features a cameo by Aubrey Plaza, who also appeared in a fashion short for Italian label Miu Miu last year.
