I walk by the Free People clothing store regularly and look at their displays with a kind of anthropological interest. These are not clothes designed for me, nor am I meant to wear them. I find some of them kind of cute (the dress on the left, the skirt on the right) and most of them puzzling.
But today I saw the Van Halen 1984 shirt and stopped short. Why are they marketing a shirt for a band consisting of members who are too old to be this demographic’s fathers? Is there some Van Halen resurgence among the young set I don’t know about? (Possibly.) I suspect they just thought the logo looked cool and made it into a shirt.
