This is Just Bullshit

Alex Wang expects you to pay $395 for a pair of jeans with a swipe of paint down the sides.

“These dirty-wash straight-leg jeans feature foil accents at the sides. 5-pocket styling and single-button closure. Mild distressing and worn edges.”

As if, Alex. You are THIS   CLOSE to being Cunt of the Week™.

    ah, lovely.

    an original alex wang to frame and hang in the parlor.

    in five years who knows what it will bring at auction?

  2. “Foil accents”? They may as well be mom jeans with duct tape.
    What WILL Wang think of next? I used to like his designs.

    i have to wonder if they don’t just sit back, wave away the cloud of smoke from the last blunt and laugh at all the silly women that buy their crap just because it has a ‘name’ on it.
    this would could be a quick DIY….except most DIY ladies, wouldn’t bother.

    This is just UGLY

    LOL, style odyssey!

    I know a Dr.-Mrs. at work who will probably order these because of the name and because they’re probably featured on that ShopBop site. Too bad we can’t wear jeans to work so I can laugh inwardly at her foil (no pun intended – har har!). She’s one of those second-rate label droppers, which further elevates her to Dr.-Mrs. status.

  7. Dr. Paul leprosy says:

    I likey where do I get? These? How many do you have to sale? If I make purchs will have overnight the money. You send back me the more money. It ok I am former prince of government of Moldavia have to flee country. I Now work with blind child with no ears, coming to USA in month. Can you make sale me this?

  8. Ann says:

    Fuck that shit.

  9. Andra says:

    Leprosy person….. what planet are you currently on and do you wish to leave?
    Nod once for yes, twice for no.
    I have Dr Who standing by to help.
    PS: In the meantime, don’t buy anything.

  10. Erika says:

    These are awful, combined with the shoes it’s a nightmare.

  11. Sister Wolf says:

    Danielle – Correct!

    Ann – You know, I think that’s what I meant to title this post!

    Andra – I have a hunch that Dr, Leprosy is a friend of mine having a mental breakdown. He works with formaldehyde. We need to be gentle with him.

    regularstarfish – I hate a label-dropper more than an ax murderer. It’s just wrong.

  12. Dru says:

    Sister- I hate label-droppers more than axe murderers too! It’s not only wrong, it’s gauche and incredibly easy to make fun of.

    note: this applies to ANY kind of labels being name-dropped, which means I will still laugh at those who name-drop high-end Japanese or French labels while under the impression that the labels’ respective French-ness/Japanese-ness makes the name-dropper in question seem like a person of sophisticated tastes.

    PS: I will laugh even harder if the person in question mispronounces the name of the label they name-drop.

  13. the real andrea says:

    Please know that I am not the Dr.- Mrs. that regularstarfish refers to!!!

    These jeans just show how Alexander Wang is laughing (at the lemmings who buy his stuff) all the way to the bank. What’s next- jewelry made from dried animal dung?

  14. Cricket9 says:

    Yay, another unbelievably creative design by Alex Wang! I would wear it with the incredibly ecological “navy wool cardigan with hood” from Ecofirstart, for only $720, you can find it here: Store_Code=EFA&Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=APP
    (if the link doesn’t work, just google “ecofirstart” and look under “apparel”)
    Or, maybe I’ll just go and trow money out of the window instead?
    On the second though, I could just as well send that money to Dr. Leprosy for the blind child with no ears.

  15. Juli says:

    Well said Ann.

  16. MG says:

    Yea…I think all the designers are getting together to punk all the trendwhores. I’ll start a business where they can give me jeans and I’ll throw paint on them for $200. At least that way they’d get a discount. These are freaking hideous not to mention they fit that girl like shit. Where’s the fashion here? Alexander Wang = fashion fail. He’s also designing flatforms…if you don’t know what those are, you can read about them on my blog. They make me want to kill myself.

  17. regularstarfish says:

    Oh, and has anyone noticed just how how hard Wang tries to emulate 90’s and early 00’s Margiela lately? Copycat.

  18. I say these deserve cunt of the week or a style challenge?

  19. patni says:

    I am delighted. My financial woes are history. Hey Alex, I have been “rocking” the paint stained jeans “look” since I was a kid. I have photographic evidence to prove it. So pay me you plagiarizing cunt.

  20. Cricket9 says:

    MG, they fit the girl like shit to match the shoes – at least one size too big, not to mention HIDEOUS. How difficult is it to find the right size shoes for a photo-shot? I see it all the time, so most likely – next to impossible.
    Back to painting walls; I may acquire a splash of Martha Stuart “reed” flat latex on my jeans in the process.

  21. David Duff says:

    “Bullshit”? More like seagull shit to me!

  22. patni says:

    The ill fitting shoe is a pet peeve of mine. I really don’t get it. even on shoots featuring shoes, the models toes stick over the edge, or slip down leaving a gap at the back. it looks silly.

  23. patni says:

    these shoes have toes… how hard would it be to stuff the toes for fucks sake so they look like they fit.

  24. Witch Moma says:

    The next step will be to cut the inside legs seams & repurpose this into a jean-skirt. OH – HOW CREATIVE.
    For cunt of the week; I nominate the asshole who runs “Go Daddy” for his elephant slaughter antics posted on you-tube.

  25. MG says:

    @ Cricket9 seriously…WTF is this? I guess they assume the tall, emaciated models will have skis for feet? The fashion world is full of a shit load of losers right now.

  26. ali says:

    Are you sure thats not supposed to be duct tape? My mess of an ex used to think it was the coolest thing to fix all his pants with duct tape. Cheap fucking bastard. Cunts of the world unite.

  27. Cricket9 says:

    Yep, a shit load of losers, that’s it! Apparently, no model has a fitting shoes on a runaway either, no wonder they fall; maybe it’s some kind of a rule of the industry, or something? I can’t wait for a 10 models’ pile-up on the runaway, one day it will happen…

  28. Taylor says:

    I actually hated this entire collection, the exception being the shoes and some of the accessories. If you think these are bad, you should see the graffiti print stuff he did in this collection. His next collection features fur sunglasses.

  29. kate says:

    i was looking forward to this decade because it seemed like fashion was going toward the standpoint that it’s ok for people to look good in their normal blue jeans. when is it just going to be stylish for everyone to wear jeans that are not ill-fitting with no glitter, “whiskers,” embroidery, patches, saggy crotches, high waists, low rises, or random shit that no one has ever thought to slap on denim before because it wasn’t a good idea then and it’s not a good idea now? when when when when when….

  30. Andra says:

    I have just been looking at Mr Wang’s collection.
    There is a pretty nifty trench coat with “extended wing flaps”.
    Jeez, I can see where that would be a handy coat to have as long as there wasn’t a high wind.
    And only $ 1,150 or so. A metziah if ever I saw one.
    Do they have layby?

  31. Perucha says:

    @style odyssey: LOL!

  32. Erika says:

    Also haha at “dirty wash” you don’t even have to mess them up yourself. They have thought of everything

  33. Marky says:

    If these were by Junya Watanabe I would like them.

  34. legsy says:

    The denim is loathsome anyways any further embelishment is just adding insult to injury.

  35. patni says:

    I have bills, and if there is any one lurking that secretly would like a pair of these, I will be happy to get them a pair of dirty old mom jeans from good will and either paint a stripe of silver paint or stick a bit of dirty duct tape up the side. I am generous, and no alexander wang. I will charge you the bargain price of only $800.

  36. patni says:

    o hahahaha. I figured they would be at least a grand. My bad, you can have them for the extra bargain basement price of only $200. And remember. I am the originator of the dirty jean with paint on. I am older than mr wang, and was probably “rocking” them before he was rocking a shitty diaper

  37. Joy D. says:

    The fit of these jeans is pretty awful, I still love those heels.

  38. That’s nothing, I’ve just come from The Shoe Girl’s site and there are some very offensive Prada boots that are just crying for a ‘Buy These Shoes, Jane’ nomination….

  39. Elaine says:

    I can accept a bit of decorative foil on my desserts but seriously this is ridiculous.
    I see no difference between these and a pair of jeans a constructor/painter wears.

  40. kate says:

    i didn’t get what was so hateful about those until i realized…. oh god, it’s not a shoe! OH GOD IT’S NOT A SHOOOOE!!! (soylent green is… booots!)

  41. Tallulah Eulallie says:

    I suck at designer math. Let’s see if I got it right. Swipe of paint < 395.00. Foil accents = 395.00. I gotta start paying attention in class!

  42. When I was at school my friend bleached the sides of her jeans and it looked shit – thirty years on, this is the same. Except it’s over-priced designer shit.

  43. Mel says:

    made me smile. 🙂

    but I think the shoes are more remarkable than the pants.
    I mean… hasn’t everyone just waited to show off their horny skin while wearing lace-up boots?

  44. jmarcherrera says:

    I love it. bahahaha. you my darling are amazing. I just discovered this blog and I love it!
