Wear (Or Carry) Your Love For Obama-------
It’s not exactly a secret that the fashion industry has a crush on the Obama presidency. Now, more than ten American designers have turned that adoration into what they do best: clothes and accessories. Sales of the official merchandise will help fund next week’s inaugural festivities. Zac Posen offers a cheeky take on formalwear, screening a bow tie and the inauguration date onto a charcoal tee. Diane von Furstenberg and Tory Burch both created eco-friendly canvas totes, while Alexander Wang went bold with a white scarf emblazoned with “CHANGE” in block letters. All items, which will be on sale through February, are priced under $70. They’re available online and at the Presidential Inaugural Store in Washington, D.C., at 625 E St., NW.
