Cyrus & Azria Collaboration A Shameful Sham

I went shopping last weekend. And no, it was not the cool shopping spree where Prada and any other given designer pops up with 70% off tags. I was looking for baby bottles and other infant devices. Given that, I searched through five different stores: Target, Walmart, Burlington, Babies R Us and Ross (dress for less). Good God. So many clothes, so cheap, so vulgar (though I did snatch a Perry Ellis white blazer marked down from 188.00 to 19.99 dollars, blessed recession). And all of this is to say that I bumped into the Miley Cyrus collection for Walmart, blessed with Max Azria’s help.

I saw plenty of stupid garments…even Jonas Brothers clothes for stuffed animals! And believe it or not, from Jessica Simpson’s desperate attempt in high fashion, to the disgusting clothes retailed under Kathy Lee’s name at K-mart, everything seems cheap. Well, everything except for Victoria Beckham’s flawless cuts or Lauren Conrad’s youthful but inexperienced designs. But when it comes to cheap, Miley’s line takes the cake. And believe me, I do like her, regardless of what other POP FIX writers think about her. But her clothing line is just lame.

To express my feelings about what I saw, I must begin with the basics. The fabric is nauseating. It is basically wash-and-throw away, unworthy of even a Forever 21 rack. The lacking of quality in the fibers is a damn shame. Considering that Walmart can get basically anything at a discounted price, it surprises me that they would commit their name to buying these products. Notwithstanding the poor threads, the designs are so simple and uninspired I am also very surprised that Max Azria would lend his name to this charade.

See, before this forsaken line, Walmart sold Miley t-shirts and pants, and even those were okay. They were for kids, for little girls who simply worshipped her. But now, for young adults or teenagers, it seems rather appalling that they are expected to think this is fashionable. Target’s Gossip Girl inspired line is infinitely better (and believe me, that’s saying a lot) and it has been more cared for and closely watched by someone who knows about the fashion industry. Here, basically two celebrities lent their voices and personalities to sell a completely irrelevant product.

Shame on them!


Enjoy the images below of the shameful line described above:


THE POP FIX wants to know…would you wear it?
