Too Much Too Young
If you don’t already have this skirt, I have to wonder why the hell not? Available here! DimePiece S/S10 is sensational. I love the whole theme and idea behind it all. Definitely look for more DimePiece appearing on Filthy Magic in the future. Definitely my favorite “urban” brand
It’s a common known fact that sex sells, but at what cost? DimePiece’s S/S 2010 collection, Too Much Too Young, ventures into the sensationalized, fast-paced and drug-ridden culture that society stresses to our youth. At some point we stopped expecting young people to be productive, intelligent members of society and began to think of them as gullible, indulgent consumers. We explore the view of today’s youth by venturing into stimulants, self-worth and politics with trippy imagery and an audacious approach. We’re taught to know “facts” but critical analysis is lost to effort to simply look like you understand. With this in mind, we tell the story of a girl who sits on the Capital’s lawn with beer cans and our symbol of ‘freedom’ as her cushion. Throughout her journey she finds herself falling through space and time, attempting to hold on to her breath…the only thing that she finds real and constant. She awakens in a disillusioned state, engulfed in a modernized jungle of drugs and sex. How much do we actually know about ourselves, and our place in America? In this story, details in the images are blurred to symbolize the lies and inaccuracies we’re told and what we’ve failed to question.
What is too much? What is too fast?
