Obama mom jeans expected to be hottest spring fashion
MILAN, ITALY -- Fashion is a fickle business.
After eight years of being ridiculed for his fashion sense, former President Barack Obama will be sitting front and center at Milan Fashion Week, where his charity line of mom jeans is scheduled to debut on Thursday.
Already, Obama's mom jeans are proving all the rage among international fashionistas, with American Vogue editor Anna Wintour calling them the season's "must-have" item.
“Honestly, it’s quite a surprise,” a humbled Obama told Women's Wear Daily. “When Michelle urged me to release a clothing line to raise money for our good friends at Habitat for Humanity, I wanted to offer my take on a piece of clothing that was both universal and distinctly American: Denim. But I had no idea that my line would get this kind of attention!”
“The design is so simple yet so elegant,” explained designer Calvin Klein. “The jeans say that not only can I be the most powerful man and mom in the world but I can do it in a cool, calm, and gender-neutral way.”
“The Obama jeans are quite extraordinary,” noted designer Giorgio Armani. “They are both sleek and stylish, a combination that is rare in this day and age. These jeans represent the apex of American fashion. I’m absolutely stunned that the Obamas had no previous design experience!”
Despite these rave reviews, the Obama mom jeans had at least one detractor.
“If people left and right are gonna wear those jeans like Obama, I don't want to shop in America anymore," said failed fashion designer Sarah Palin, whose line of KKK-themed designed glasses was briefly sold under Ivanka Trump's eponymous brand.
Palin then concluded she would be much happier living in a place like New Zealand and immediately proceeded to purchase a one-way ticket to the populous city of Oakland.
