Of course, this has been going on for years. It's the lack of appreciation for subversive design because their eyes are untrained to notice such design details and more importantly the bigger picture. They register for sz and are easily impressed by what they perceive as radical/dramatic dress so they gravitate to it not to mention the color palate is easy peasy. Then after years of spending shit tons of money, getting beat up, called emo by the fashion ignorant, and wasting hours shuffling through innumerable classifieds threads they end up selling off the majority of their wardrobes and start collecting old helmut, margiela and raf.
