Sasha Obama poised to set another fashion frenzy with panda sweater
First she sparked a shopping stampede with her trend-setting unicorn sweater. And now, pandas! The retail landscape may never recover.
As President Barack Obama formally pardoned turkeys named Popcorn and Caramel on Wednesday, first daughter Sasha Obama, 12, stood by his side and rocked an adorable panda sweater.
It appears to be this Coincidence & Chance Party Panda Sweater, which retails for $69 at Urban Outfitters.
If recent history is any indication, Urban Outfitters should prepare for its website to crash. When Sasha wore an ASOS unicorn sweater to a Maryland Terps women's basketball game on Nov. 17, tweens, teens and adults clamored to buy unicorn sweaters of their own. The $45 object of desire quickly sold out, so British e-tailer ASOS had to announce plans to re-stock the coveted item.
"After the youngest Obama, Sasha, wore a (sold out, boo) ASOS unicorn jumper to a basketball game ... the internet went crazy for it and demanded a re-stock," the ASOS blog said. "Set your iCal and keep your eye on the ASOS Twitter feed for more updates. Skippidy-yippidy-unicorn-yay!"
