You know how your friend ropes you into helping man a table at the community flea market and you’re stuck all day there, answering questions about ashtrays older than you, wondering why you bothered?
This is not that.
While we’re very pleased for Miss Ri that her celebrated fashion line is doing so well, we’re afraid we’re never really going to get the appeal of a track suit rendered in upholstery fabric. We get that she’s pulling from her own cultural and artistic background for this line, but it really does look too cray for words from where we’re sitting.
As we noted, however, it’s a line that sells very well, so it doesn’t really matter what we think. We’re neither the consuming demographic, nor are we part of the critical demographic to which this line is being pitched. Girlfriend found a niche and filled it with her wares. It looks goofy to us, but it’s pretty much designed to look goofy to us.
