It Leaves Me Confused...

This, is an Eley Kishimoto pleated collar printed shirt, priced $486 $389...

If only the world knew, there are millions of shirts like these in Indonesia, cuz hey, that's a batik print as a matter of fact, and you can literally get these for only $25, with quality.

Arrrgghhhh....I am confused on whether to laugh or be angry....help.

definitely laugh. the thing that annoys me the most is that here in Germany all the fashion magazines call "tie-dye" patterns as batik!! Argghh!! I feel like saying to them in the face - go to Indonesia or Malaysia and you'll see the real deal.
Btw, nice blog and love the fact that you make something weird looks amazing! :)

So true, T.S.D. They're not trying to cheat or anything actually (I think), they just don't know much about the real history or origins of batik, ikat prints and the like...

Yayy to Asia!! :D
