We are the ones we've been waiting for
OK, I may not be the only one (ok, ok, I probalby am), so I'm going to be the brave one who asks:Who is Marc Jacobs? Why is there a Paris, France shirt transformed into a shirt with his name on it?These are questions I'll need answered before I can tell you if it's cool or not.
A trend-bucking designer. I'll let the power of aggregated knowledge tell you his whole story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_Jacobs
Oh, the shirt - I don't know the significance of the original image (other, that, y'know, Paris - I mean I don't know if it has any connection to Marc Jacobs). I just like that it's all, "Yeah, fuck your shirt. It's my shirt now. See?"
Yeah, I guess I'm going with "eh." But I'm not sure you and me see exactly eye to eye on the whole fashion thing. I don't like designers' names on stuff, so, I'm going to have to go with, not a whole lot more than 20 bucks. Or why not buy a rome shirt and write J.B on it?
Ooh! Or, buy a shirt with "Barstow WASPS" on it and cross off everything that isn't TOWWAS! I know, I know. Their mascot is the Aztecs...Is there a t-shirt that says "Bubbas Tow & Wash"?
I was at the Marc Jacobs store on Fillmore St. recently and was surprised to see that they have started a line of ultra-inexpensive stuff (a la H&M) - mostly accessories, as far as I could tell - that included fingerless gloves and rain boots. They were cute but definitely had that Chinese Sweatshop look about them.We must be having a mind-link because I had just resolved to save up enough credit card points to get $300 worth of Bloomingdale's gift certificates to spend on (half of a) Marc Jacobs dress.Then I thought, well for $300 I could get a lot of more practical stuff...
