I was Christmas shopping at a Nordstrom in midtown when I spied this fantastic silk men’s shirt with the likeness of actress Sissy Spacek as Stephen King’s ill-fated Prom Queen, Carrie (from the eponymous 1976 film directed by Brian De Palma). A little Googling reveals this shirt to be from designer JW Anderson‘s Fall/Winter 2022 Carrie Collection — because of course it is!
To wit: “JW Anderson’s Carrie collection is bloody amazing. Featuring visuals from Brian De Palma’s cinematic interpretation of the Stephen King novel, the range is an easy yes for film buffs and fashion aficionados alike.
T-shirts, button-downs, pants, and puffers bear the film’s tagline — “If you’ve got a taste for terror, take Carrie to the prom” — and its iconic poster, a side-by-side of the horror protagonist, played by Sissy Spacek, before and after that famous pig blood moment.”
And if you think that’s scary, you won’t want look at the price tag: this shirt retail for $850. Eek!
