Who says L.A.’s elites are out of touch? As the LA Times reports, home furnishings made from recycled burlap, old brooms, and discarded barrels are all the rage, in a recession-chic style dubbed “dumpster diver deluxe.” Celebs like Kathy Hilton (Paris’s mom) and Leonardo DiCaprio have jumped on the trend, spending thousands of bucks on garbage—err, I mean, on humble, sensitively designed goods—as a way to show they’re in touch with the hard-hit masses. Prediction: At fashion shows soon, models will be wearing only barrels held up by suspenders.
