Funny or Die gets into the fashion game -- VIDEO

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.
