: alexander wang fall 2009
hahahaha... i accidentally saw this on fashion indie, and it is so funny that i have to post it up!!
(btw, i love alexander wang, this post is not to against him.)
Dear Mr. Wang,
I would like to bring to your attention this little thing called “The Recession.” I know this may come as a shock to you, but people have taken pay-cuts or altogether lost their jobs, putting many in financial crisis and allowing less disposable income for frivolous spending. That being said, I would really like to know your rationale behind pricing your 75% rayon, 25% spandex ribbed jersey biker shorts at a nauseating $395. I hope you are aware that one could achieve the same look by picking up some sort of athletic compression shorts at a nearby sporting goods store for a mere $20. Fashionistas on a major budget could even take a pair of leggings and cut them to the desired length, saving them upwards of $400.
As always, your trends never cease to amaze me and your prices never cease to make me cringe. Please, if you are going to charge so much for such a simple garment, at least construct them from fine leather or intertwine a follicle of Michael Jackson’s hair or something.
