There is nothing that more clearly articulates the stereotypical personality of Los Angeles fashion than Ed Hardy. This Spring 09 not only featured the typical plethora of decals on hoodies, jeans, and denim skirts, but accessorized them with UGG boots, plastic visors, trucker hats, and bodega-style Kayne West glasses. It is so bad, so very very unfashionable, that we're wondering if we might have just found our halloween costume (we were going to be either Glamour Shots or Sexy 19th Century Oil Tycoon)--that is, if we have the courage to don such things in New York. Perhaps we're taking it too seriously though, perhaps the Ed Hardy team totally gets how tacky it is--something tells us, however, that their loyal customer might not be in on the joke.
