It’s only fitting that Ottolinger‘s soundtrack is as destructive as their clothing.
Over the last few years, the Berlin fashion house has become one of the world’s most influential up-and-coming brands, with a cut-and-paste aesthetic that looks kind of like a bunch of art school kids tore apart a bunch or regular clothes and sewed them back together in weird directions—but in a good way.
At Ottolinger’s SS17 presentation in New York, Maria & Yanling provided a glitchy lo-fi mix of breaks, rave synths and pummeling beats that perfectly matched the brand’s intense looks and post-apocalyptic set (a fitting mix of “ripped white tarps” and “blood red lights” that “looked like a scene from a Gaspar Noé film”). It’s certainly a vibe.
