Week ending February 14, 2015 -- If you haven't noticed by now, the EDM community embraces the weird. It's a way of life for us; weird is our version of normal. And the weird is also in our sense of fashion. In our view of fashion, it is 100% acceptable to wear unicorn leggings in broad daylight, while running errands -- bonus points if they glow underneath a UV blacklight. We're notorious for our shameless onesies, our strange slogans, and our ubiquitous knack for covering part of our faces when the occasion calls for it. So isn't it about time that we shone a spotlight on the fashion trends making rounds within EDM culture? I can count plenty of times when I've double-tapped an Instagram photo of a DJ wearing a witty slogan tee, wondering where he or she got it. Or how about that time you and your crew dressed up as sea animals at that boat festival (I'm looking at you, Holy Ship!), but the epic photo you all took got lost in the mix with the rest? Behold, I introduce you to my new weekly fashion feature, where we'll catch glimpses of musicians' and fans' personal style.
Mija (@hi_mija) Don't Fuck With U
"shipfam x dirtybird x yung mija"
Mija rocks an "IDFWU" slogan tee while spinning with Motez, Destructo, Justin Martin, and Anna Lunoe at the #SHIP2SHIP tour stop at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles. I haven't seen this graphic elsewhere yet, but judging from its enlarged Versace logo, it may be from Pizza Slime, a label whose tees present a welcome identity crisis.
Mr. Carmack (@mr_carmack) gets his Yeezys before anyone else can
"Found the new yeeZys in Africa"
By now, it's common knowledge that Kanye West dominated the past few days at New York Fashion Week as he presented his collaboration with Adidas. And the Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost was fully reserved within seconds by sneakerheads everywhere, two days before its official release date of February 14, 2015. But Mr. Carmack found these canvas high-tops in Africa, and he swears they're Yeezys. Yeezy Burlap 4s?
Skrillex (@skrillex) plays Cupid in a rainbow onesie
"woke up like dis feelin so free"
Looks like Skrillex (or his fan, @dessi.ifxz) had some fun with Photoshop this past week. Here, he shows off some '90s fashion vibes in a rainbow onesie; you can find a similar one here. Who needs that typical tank-top-and-boardshorts combo at a festival, when you can slip on a onesie, and be comfortable and stylish at the same time?!
Chromat empowers women with their Fall 2015 collection of conceptual lingerie

After debuting their Fall/Winter 2015 collection at their empowering runway show at New York Fashion Week, Chromat after-partied through the night at Black Bear Bar in Brooklyn, NY. There was no theme for the party, but girls and boys alike dressed in Chromat’s signature look: monochromatic and skin-bearing garments in geometric silhouettes. For a similar, festival-friendly top to these gals’ that Chromat would be sure to approve, check out this strappy black top from This Is a Love Song. (Fun fact: This is a Love Song sponsors the Major Lazer dancers!)
Chloe Norgaard (@chloenorgaard), model, shows us the true meaning of "lime" light
"[fan instagram account] giving me all those good flashbacks"
If you don't follow Chloe Norgaard, please open Instagram, search her name, and hit "follow" now. Count on her to change her hair color weekly, post videos of kaleidoscopes, and selfies of herself prancing around on-set. For some similar DIY hair fun, use this Pravana hair color in Vivid Green.
Anna Lunoe (@annalunoe) just keeps swimming
"hurry uber i need to tgif asap"
The Bass Drum Dealer/BAMF herself called an Uber in this fish-printed cardigan that I'm currently coveting. The black-and-white trend is going strong this season, and her outfit is on point. I'm just wondering where in the world Anna Lunoe is. It's currently a single degree Fahrenheit here in New York City, and I can't imagine showing a sliver of skin outside!
Jeremy Scott (@itsjeremyscott) has X-ray vision
"#TBT TO WHEN I HAD X-RAY VISION"
Who else thinks these spiral stunners would be perfect at a concert, club, or festival? Jeremy Scott, always known for his outlandish designs when it comes to fashion, posted this throwback, and I think his silver jacket complements the futuristic shades perfectly. Rock this similar goggle style at any event for bonus points! The designer has yet to show during Fall/Winter 2015 Fashion Week, but you can check out his Spring 2015 namesake collection here.
