$1,200 Versace Sweater Looks a Lot Like Old Vancouver Canucks Uniform
The ‘80s and ‘90s are so in right now.
Just ask Italian fashion house Versace, which appears to have ripped off the Vancouver Canucks’ old jersey design for a pricey new “printed sweatshirt” for women.
The black Versace-designed sweater features a logo with a yellow-rimmed white circle behind the word “VERSACE” written at a 45-degree angle, surrounded by black, white and yellow lines that make the shape of a skate.
It should be a very familiar design and colour scheme for Canucks fans, whose team wore virtually the same “flying skate” logo (with different lettering) from 1985-1997.
While a throwback Canucks sweater might cost you up to $200 online, Versace’s version is listed at $1,260 (860 Euros). That’s roughly the cost of a pair of Canucks’ season tickets.
“This sweater is exactly what we’d expect a basic from Versace to be – body-hugging, sensuous design with a bold pattern emblazoned across the front,” the product description reads. “Wear yours with anything and everything – from boyfriend-cut jeans to feminine skirts.”
