People Pay You That Much to Sit Down?
WORDS BY PETITE ANGLAISE
For those connected enough to attend New York Fashion week, be well advised. Front row is now the new red carpet with many celebrities, socialites, and wannabees skipping the cameras of the front entrance to sit calmly and most importantly to be seen, front row. At my first New York Fashion Week 2 years ago, I was honored to even sit down, let alone sit about 4 rows behind Nicole Richie. But alas, some of the more infamous (or famous) personalities feel well…”obligated” to make an appearance, for a cost, of course.

Space Invader Tights
I’m strangely down for these. They’re invading her pants like I want to invade her space. **Crickets**
But at $80, I’ll probably have to leave those tights alone. If you’re going to spend $80 on a product that was probably made in the middle of Malaysia by a child for a wage of $3 an hour, then you probably often wonder why you can’t make rent.
On second thought, just save your money in a tin can hid beneath your bed. When real space invaders come to visit, you can invest in a shotgun.

“Native Leagues Project” – True x The Hundreds
I can already feel it. This shirt is going to be huge. You take all the people of San Francisco, and all the people of Oakland, add in True’s fanbase as well as The Hundreds fanbase, and to top that off, anyone who is even half a Raiders fan, and then you show them this shirt. They WILL go nuts. Of course, in accordance with the law, this shirt is in no way connected to the Oakland Raiders franchise. It just happens to have an eyepatch, crossing swords, and a football helmet. Nothing illegal here.
Now that I think about it, both Raiders fans and Hundreds fan are quick to pull the trigger when it comes to getting their respective logo tattoos inked on their skin.
Who wants to put money that this design will be someone’s body art?
Adapt X Hieroglyphics X Souls of Mischief
Oakland-based hip-hop legends Hieroglyphics and Souls of Mischief have teamed up with bay-area streetwear staple Adapt on a collaborative tee shirt project entitled ‘93 til.

Very limited quantities. Visit adaptclothing.com and hieroglyphics.com for additional info.
Snuggie and a Half Shell
After first, I thought, “Snuggie got lucky. They STILL don’t know what they’re doing trying to sell blankets with armholes.” And they come in here with this abomination playing off of our sentimentality.
That’s just mean, Snuggie. Not cool. Leave TMNT alone.
But if you must, could you get better kids to model them than these EMO losers?
