In case you missed the 24-hour-only drop on Burberry's Instagram, or like most of us, can't afford to spend a few hundred dollars on a t-shirt that says "Cow" but still enjoyed Riccardo Tisci's debut line, we have a solution. Ever ones to critique the capitalist mechanisms of the fashion system, a small sect of Couturesque writers banded together over iMessage yesterday to recreate Tisci's collection. The catch? Using only clothes that we already owned. The result were looks authentic to our personalities and tastes, without spending a dime or adding more stress on the planet (the effects of fast fashion are widespread and deeply detrimental to people and ecosystems globally).
Consumerism - 0, Couturesque - 1.
