What better way to show you are a man of the people than to have ritzy fashion designers make some junk for you and then sell it on the website at inflated prices?
Some of the designs from the Obama campaign “Runway to Win” project are already up on the web. You can’t purchase them until February, but you can pre-order.
Some of these designers don’t, you know, seem to have put a lot of effort into their work. Maybe they’re closet Republicans.
Okay, I wouldn’t go that far.
Anyway, I think you’ll agree, most are headed straight for eBay the day after Election Day, Obama win or Obama lose.
Let’s start with this Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez shirt. It’s actually a little nauseating. Especially at $45.
Look at this. Its by Grace Tsao-Wu and Laura Kofoid. It looks like one of my kids pasted a sticker on my wife’s . . . what is this anyway? It’s $85.
This bag by Tory Burch is seems to have been made intentionally grating. I’m sure he’s working for Romney. $75
This is by Marc Jacobs. Really, this took a designer to do? Priced at $45.
This piece by Beyonce and Tina Knowles is not bad. But you have to look closely to see it has anything to do with Obama. Cost you $45
Not clear that this $55 shirt by Jason Wu has anything to do with Obama. Is there a sparrow running for some local office?
And these bags by Diane Von Furstenberg I do like. They cost $85.
