Vintage 90's Le Metal Plaid Mini Skirt
Red traditional plaid mini skirt with metal d-rings all around!
Lip Service, Made in USA, Size 22
Okay, so here is something interesting about this tag. Lip Service was owned and designed by Drew Bernstein, who created the company in the 80's when he was like 20-something years old in his parents' garage. Drew unfortunately died in 2012, and at the time of his death, he was dating our shop owner, Madeline. Drew and Madeline were in love, yada, yada, yada -- it was tragic. While listing this vintage skirt, Madeline noticed the tag reads "Le Metal" instead of Lip Service, and in fact only says Lip Service on the paper tag showing the size, and then she started laughing because Drew had a vanity license plate on his car that read "LEMETAL" and once she asked him what it meant and he said, "Oh, you know, cuz I just put metal on everything I design and that's how I think it looks good!" And now holding this skirt, with metal D-rings all over it, and reading the tag that reads "Le Metal" instead of "Lip Service" we can't help but laugh at how funny and self-aware and creative and amazing Drew was. So this skirt is special to us, and we hope it's special to one of you, too! R.I.P. Drew Bernstein, the pioneer of clothing for oddball weirdos everywhere, and someone near and dear to our hearts always and forever.
