T-shirt inspired by Kanye West's sneakers comes with $90k price tag
London, July 11 (ANI): A T-shirt inspired by Kanye West's Air Yeezy sneakers is up for sale on eBay at a staggering 90,300 dollars.
Known only by name, elusive designer Wil Fry, created the tee in a frenetic pattern of Platinum Yeezy 2s, following the enormously hyped launch of the shoe last month.
But despite the hefty price tag, visitors to his page can also make an offer if they don't have access to that much cash.
Fry has appeared to poke fun at the Air Yeezy phenomenon by pricing his limited edition design at just a snippet more than the cost of the first pair of the coveted sneakers to hit eBay for 90,000 dollars.
With a devoted following of only 150 fans on Twitter, the daring designer has already drawn no less than 50 bids for the exclusive item.
It is hard to tell from the sale history what the bids have been like but with 48 of them declined and only two pending response, it would seem that he is yet to receive anything satisfactory.
However, his followers though are no less enthusiastic for it.
"Dude did it again with the Yeezy tee," the Daily Mail quoted one person as writing on his Twitter account.
"So simple it's ironic yet something that is groundbreaking! shoutout from Australia!" he wrote.
This isn't the first time Wil Fry has found himself in the spotlight for a quirky design either.
His last T-shirt, a print made up of scores of high end clothing labels, was a hit among sartorial satirists.
Challenging the notion of branding and copyright infringement, he sold the T-shirt covered in the likes of Chanel and Dior logos for a mere 30 dollars just to make a point. (ANI)
