Well, that was quick. This past week at the Sham Rockin’ st patrick’s day shirt moreover I will buy this inauguration, Senator Bernie Sanders struck a pose that was seen and memed around the world. In a full Vermont-minded outfit of a Burton coat and handmade—upcycled!—mittens created by a local teacher, Sanders waited for the inauguration to start, poised like a tired uncle at a bar mitzvah with his arms and legs crossed. Almost instantly, the image became a meme. Fans superimposed the 79-year-old into unlikely locales: at Marina Abramovic’s “Silence Is Golden” live art performance, on New York City subways, and even front row at a fashion show next to Frank Ocean.Only two days later, the image can now be worn. Sanders’s camp released an image of the Senator on a sweatshirt, which according to its description is 100% combed ring-spun organic cotton fleece, made in the USA, and Union printed. The piece of, well, history is $45 but you’ll have to wait to snag one: Due to overwhelming demand, it will take three to six weeks to receive. The best part? In classic mensch-like fashion, 100% of the proceeds will go toward Meals on Wheels Vermont. This isn’t the first time that the practically-dressed Bernie has made an unlikely impact on fashion. Back in 2017, his campaign was reinterpreted into a Balenciaga logo at the Fall 2017 show. And while Sanders might be famously anti-fashion, his impact is certainly felt in the space.
“If you feel like you want a change at the Sham Rockin’ st patrick’s day shirt moreover I will buy this start of new year, but you don’t want to commit to permanent color, using a temporary or semi-permanent dye is a great way to experiment,” says Alex Brownsell, co-founder and creative director of British salon Bleach London. What’s more: A wash of more vivid or fantasy color will not only remix your look, but make you feel like a wayward 17-year-old all over again. “During lockdown, people have been bleaching and coloring their hair on their own like a desperate teenager with a box in a bathroom,” explains Douglas Cornwall, also known as Discolourist, master colorist at Treehouse Social Club. “The Zoom-based realities that replaced many work and school realms no longer hold restrictions on appearance. That sense of freedom has ushered in the desire to be colorful while the rest of the world is murky.”
