"Griffin you a Merry ChrisPaulmas" Instagram photo by @jadande
The Los Angeles Clippers risked humilation by arriving to Staples Center donning hideous chic. After the big win over the Denver Nuggets, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul wore them during after-game press conference. In-your-face fabrics is the new way to diss a beaten opponent.
This must be what the Mayans warned us about. The ugly sweater is fashion doomsday that gained traction in 2012. There was a surge of Angelenos willing to wear thick outwear heavy with seasonal hieroglyphs, a trend that ends with a severe morning-after.Even the guardians of L.A. County's culture and good taste held an Ugly Holiday Sweater Party.
It is not reserved to hunting and wearing late 20th Century fashion artifacts. San Diego's Tipsy Elves sells new designs, reports the LA Times. "Bestsellers include reindeer dancing in a conga line and a multitasking Santa spelling out 'Merry Christmas' in the snow as he relieves himself."
Missed out? You can plan for next year at Ugly Sweater Store.
Call it anti-public art.
