Dear Christian Audigier,
I think I speak for most of America when I ask that you please go back to France and leave our sportswear brands alone.
We all know what you did with Von Dutch. I am confident that if Paris Hilton were available (and not tied up with her Vegas nose powdering legal antics), she would agree. Someday if/ when she gets married, all of those trucker hat photos will totally end up in the embarrassing photo rehearsal dinner slideshow.
Your work with the Ed Hardy brand has brought us too tight t-shirts and an over abundance of rhinestones. There are millions of misguided souls wearing oddly placed tattoo imagery on their clothing. Exhibit A: Miss El-No. How is this a good idea? And why do her pants remind me of Bette Midler singing “The Wind Beneath My Wings?” I pity this poor eagle.
American design used to be known for it’s squeaky-clean aesthetic. We were crisp, sharp, and modern. Did France send you over to screw with us? Is this payback for the “freedom fry” nonsense?
P.S. Thanks for costuming the cast of the Jersey Shore! You clothing seems to be the perfect accompaniment to jungle juice and smushing.
*Thanks for the photo MRI!
**Enjoy the long holiday weekend! And send me some pictures.
