Fashion Foul? Urban Outfitters' Alexander Wang Lookalike
Posted Tuesday October 8, 2013 8:09 AM GMT
Back in 1990, Tipper Gore and the Parents Music Resource Center started slapping “Parental Advisory” stickers on rock albums with bad language, and it seems the label has become quite the fashion statement more than twenty years later.
After Alexander Wang incorporated the image for sweatshirts in his Spring 2014 runway presentation, Urban Outfitters took note and set to work on a knockoff.
And of course, consumers can’t get enough of the Parental Advisory aesthetic given that UO sells theirs for $44 versus Wang’s steep $995 price tag.
Also capitalizing on Alexander Wang’s 1990s throwback piece is Forever 21, though their design replaces “Parental” with “New York,” and sells for $13.80.
