After months of sneak peeks and previews, the DimePiece SS09 collection called “Plastic City” is finally here and the head dimes at DMPC, Laura and Ashley, have outdone themselves again. This season’s collection has a variety of racer-back tunics, tanks, and slouchy scoop neck tees all with the usual in your face graphics. Also included are two structured pieces, the Napolean vest and Zig-Zag mini skirt, perfect for when you want to fancy up your swag but without girly frills. You can view the Plastic City look book here.
Like collections in the past, DMPC has relied on the clothing they create to get out a specific message. First, their name “DimePiece” is ironic and meant “to turn the perception of the word around and be able to use it proudly.” For “Plastic City” Barbie (“the plastic devil”) was both their muse and nemesis. The collection questions “the immense physical idealism that Hollywood puts on its youth and the youth across the globe.” Basically, there’s more to you than what you look like. Well said ladies.
