Obama Fever in Paris

Designers now are turning to the US election for inspiration.

At Paris Fashion Week this month, French designer Sonia Rykiel paid tribute to the Presidential candidate with a string of preppy outfits, as did Jean Charles de Castelbajac, an old friend of Andy Warhol‘s.

The short yellow and black outfit, displaying a picture of Barack Obama’s upper body, complete with bright and fun fingerless “yes” and “no” gloves, astounded the runway.

Will these outfits still be “in” this spring, long after the next president has been elected?
