Never Mind the Bollocks


Daniel Palillo lookbook. Click on the image to enlarge.

Our Finnish friend Daniel Palillo did a short stint in the states this past Spring, which included DJing my party at Anchor bar, hanging around New York, and generally getting inspired for his latest collection. The new collection is largely based on Daniel's teenage years, dropping references to his music idols, as well as to his day to day activities: Saturday night soccer matches, Sunday morning cartoons.  While some icons are immediately recognizable, like Marge Simpson's blue beehive, and Bugs Bunny's winning smile, they are all given Palillo's demented twist.  Marge's yellow face is a skull, and Bugs's ears are so long that they extend beyond the boundaries of the tee-shirt on which they're emblazoned.  The childish influence translates perfectly for Daniel's second Children's collection, which basically consists of miniature versions of the adult clothes.  While the adult clothes pack a twisted punch, the kid's collection is pure humor.  I am very far away from having children, but looking at those photos makes me want to kidnap all my nieces and nephews and dress them up as ennui-stricken little monsters and acid-house loving tiny dancers.
