One shouldered sports bra by Alexander Wang, $58.00 at Opening Ceremony
Sports bras are ugly. I live for mine when I work out but it is not something I want to take out as a fashion statement. Wang had the brilliant idea of making an ugly, utilitarian undergarment even worse by making it outerwear and removing any function. How are you supposed to wear this? On the runway the pieces were styled in a way that would resemble an old timey hobo boxer if worn out in public.
Studded canvas tote by Opening Ceremony for Alexander Wang, $125.00 at Opening Ceremony.
Another one of what I not-so-affectionately call a cheap trick. Opening Ceremony and Alexander Wang are pandering to those who cannot afford the trendy Rocco bag but still want to feel included in their exclusive world. Is it entirely their fault for selling these insulting canvas totes for $125 bucks, when someone could find a real leather no-name bag for cheaper? As long as there is a market, crap like this will keep popping up.
Submitted by Chrys. Sometime ago I considered posting this Alexander Wang denim covered hoodie, but I decided that it was stupid, but not ugly enough to warrant a post. This takes that idea to a new level. Is there really a market out there for trompe l’oeil denim? What is even worse is that it appears to be a motif D&G arerunning with.
Terry shorts by Alexander Wang, $225.00 at Shopbop.
Ah, my first Alexander Wang post. He is one of the harbingers of this “dirty chic” trend that has taken the fashion blog world by storm. These cutoff sweat shorts epitomizes all that is terrible regarding this trend. Personally, I don’t I should be more offended by the aesthetics of them or that they cost 225 bucks.
