T By Alexander Wang’s Spring 2013 ‘Bon Qui Qui’ Or The Over Use Of Stereotypes

Alexander Wang launches his T by Alexander Wang Spring 2013 ad featuring Anjelah Johnson as Bon Qui Qui, a stereotype of the city female that I for one have seen a little too much of. The irony is that Bon Qui Qui is often the muse for many trends that have now gone mainstream and are viewed as praiseworthy from hair extensions to nail art, athletic wear, color streaks to name a few. High-end fashion loves to make fun of the world’s Bon Qui Qui, but those of us with eyes and ears on the streets know that in many ways she’s a trendsetter. As much I’ve liked Wang this one makes me pause. (The A$ap Rocky cameo was cute though).
