I saw my fair share of strange looking overpriced clothes. I saw so many that I actually am ready to dedicate a complete segment to overpriced shit you’ll never catch me wearing. Let’s see what I have to say…
Let’s be real, we live in a sad world. A world where you get judged based on the label of your clothes, so naturally, people could wear Cinderella’s nasty floor mop if we added a Chanel tag on it. But don’t get me wrong, I appreciate good clothing, in fact, I am one of the picky shoppers. I am also willing to pay more for stuff which actually deserve more, but sometimes, I just feel like designers are fucking with us.
Exhibit A – the Gucci meets Sex Shop shoes, € 1.150 (overpriced shit 1)
Do I even need to say anything? 1.150 euros for a latex sock in a blue sandal (that looks like you picked it up from a good ol’ thrift shop)… but I mean… it’s Gucci though.
Exhibit B – The Intergalactic Swag Biker Jacket by Tommy Hilfiger, € 890 (overpriced shit 2)
I personally feel offended by this jacket. It is hands down the ugliest colour scheme and material I have ever seen. And as if things weren’t already bad for this jacket, it is also CROPPED.
3/5 cropped jackets look ugly in general, but 5/5 cropped metallic blue and silver biker jackets look ugly.
Keep it up Tommy!
Exhibit C – What the fuck is happening by Stella McCartney, € 675 (overpriced shit 3)
I am at loss for words. The first thing I think of when I see this is a failed piece of art. You know, when artists try too hard to make something hype and just fail? Thats what this would look like. But let me give my interpretation of this, I see the Japanese flag, repeated, weird bold writings like you see on every hoodies nowadays, super weird/wannabe cool ice cream cones with a text (with no meaning) printed across in a “cool” font and an ugly unflattering tunique shape. This is the type of mess which belongs in a Desigual store. No joke.
Exhibit 4 – In case one button breaks by Ellery, € 580 (overpriced shit 4)
In case you were wondering what happens to that one pair of jeans that you always find on the sales rack, well it gets re-labeled and sold for almost 600 euros. Honestly… like seriously… Why so many buttons? I really need to know because it obviously isn’t for aesthetics so what is the meaning of this?
I think that is enough for today.
If any of the pieces are your cup of tea, cool, rock them (if you can afford them)! These are obviously my opinions.
I’ll see you soon with another blogpost!
