Tom Ford Knocks Of A $65 Jay Z Concert T-Shirt, Sells It For $6,500
Ford was inspired by Jay Z’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail” tour T-shirts that read “Tom Ford,” “61” with the word “Molly” x’ed out –in reference to his rhyme: “I don’t pop molly. I rock Tom Ford,” reports The Huffington Post. At London Fashion Week, which opened February 14th, Ford showed a black-and-white and an orange-and-white sequin dress down the runway that duplicated Jay-Z’s shirt. It is part of Ford’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection.
“I just took the knock off from online, and knocked it off,” Ford explained to The Associated Press following the show.
Jay Z’s original concert T-shirt was designed by the French clothing line called BBP (Black Boy Place) and costs $65. Ford’s version is a little steeper.
“My knockoff will sell for $6,500,” Ford said to Style.com.
We thought knockoffs were supposed to cost less! You know it’ll be $9.95 at H&M any day now.
