Style Ish: Moda Operandi’s Punk Shop
Guilty: I kind of love things like this- things that give me an excuse to be an openly-critical asshole. Moda Operandi, in conjunction with the Met’s Punk: From Chaos to Couture exhibition, has created an online shop with a collection of “punk” clothes, jewelry, and objects. That’s right, kids. You TOO can be punk, and it will only cost you your life’s wages. Some of the pieces, price tags, and of course, my scornful comments below. Let the snarkfest begin!
[These utterly ridiculous safety pin pumps. $1,495.]
[Fuck the 9-5 life! I mean, I have enough money to buy this watch, so obviously I would NEVER subject myself to working a- what are those things called?- oh yes, a job. Amiright guys? $11,900.]
[This laughable anarchy sweater. $625.]
[Probably my favorite of them all: these completely idiotic fake tattoos. There are so many issues, the main one being: What’s with appropriating the Mo-dettes? Also, that ugly mohawked clip-art skull thing is the best. $95.]
[This totally hideous Birkin bag. $29,000.]
[This hilariously literal safety-pin-on-a-gold-chain necklace. $245]
[And an equally obvious branded t-shirt that says “Fuck.” $250.]
[This actually-pretty-cute, sad-to-say-I’d-rock-if-I-was-a-millionaire Vivienne Westwood dress. $3,785.]
[This ugly-ass leather, studded t-shirt. $3,750.]
[Hands-down the most ridiculous item: a pair of gold, diamond earrings that will set you back a few hundred grand. $285,000.]
More spikes, Union Jacks, plaid, anarchy symbols, safety pins, and leather if you can handle it. Meanwhile over at J. Crew… have I mentioned I’ve lost all faith in humanity? NBD.
