daft punk is quite fashionable now. i don’t just mean in the sense that everyone’s hopping on the band wagon, but literally fashionable. with their last 2 outfits designed by hedi slimane of saint laurent, actually appearing on the saint laurent site, to these videos below.
the first was created for the 2013 cfda awards to show the nominees for “menswear designer of the year”–thom browne, michael bastian, and duckie brown; thom browne was the winner. these male models are singing the lyrics to daft punk’s first single off random access memories “get lucky”.
then earlier today, the robotic duo was spotted in manhattan’s midtown (don’t even get me started on how upset i am that i’m not in town for that) shooting a video with someone who looks a lot like famous model karlie kloss.
as the entire internet is abuzz about, daft punk’s new album “random access memories” is dropping may 21. i’m so excited…my favorite band with a disco sound and their new outfits are fittingly all sequinned out courtesy of hedi slimane of saint laurent. there’s so much anticipation and i love that they’re going back to disco amidst all this freaking edm hype. watching the collaborators videos about making the album is pretty inspiring too.
i can already tell i’m going to love this album from what’s been teasingly released so far…i mean it’s disco! and “get lucky” features one of my celebrity crushes, pharrell. it’s serendipitous that it’s been released on my birthday. so of course i already pre-ordered it.
i’ve had some great things coincide with my birthday in the past…sun god festival (the only day that ucsd becomes a party school) and shrek 2 (yes, shrek).
this year is the first time i’ll experience having my birthday with final exams and actually have an operations quiz that day. i’d been wanting to a disco theme, and actually even go to a disco, for my birthday but thought nobody would really be into it. but i think daft punk will make things so much easier and actually get people to start liking disco too i think.
