We’ve seen a lot of good shows this season: Nicole Miller, Rebecca Minkoff, Tracy Reese to name a few. We also caught Vivienne Tam’s fall 2013 runway show this weekend and we’re still trying to wrap our heads around it. Those are a few of the looks above and at first glance, it’s hard to miss the red and black theme. But if you look closer, you’ll notice Obama illustrations on some of the pieces–dubbed Obama pop art–along with QR codes.
Bizarre? Yeah, we thought so, too. And apparently we weren’t alone. Fashionista asked Tam about the print and she explained, “It just came to me. This hope and humor. It wasn’t about politics, I just wanted a new dialogue. I wanted to dress a woman with heart, who cares about what’s happening in the world, not just about fashion.”
Fair enough, right? But cool enough to actually wear? The jury is still out. We love Obama, but enough to wear a dress bearing his face? TBD.
What about you? Would you wear the Obama pop art designs from Vivienne Tam’s fall 2013 collection?
