A replica of Kanye West’s mustard-stained shirt from his 2004 video for All Falls Down - complete with a hand-embroidered copy of his mustard stain - is being sold for $400.
Bandalu, a brand that shills pop culture-inspired one-offs, has fixed up a pink Ralph Lauren polo – a brand that sells pop culture-inspired one-offs made from vintage wares – with splotches of golden yellow hand embroidery.
The embroidery, of course, is a more polished take on the mustard stain Mr West acquired in the music video while chasing his co-star, Stacey Dash, through an airport.
Bandalu only created one of these bespoke shirts – a size medium – and is selling it through Boston-based streetwear store, Bodega.
It is available for purchase through Bodega’s website, as well as in-store.
While the polo may seem gimmicky, it does paint Mr West’s earlier work as a slow-growing classic.
The All Falls Down video represents one of Mr West’s first forays into film, fashion, and stylistic innovation – and helped establish his reputation as a visual pioneer.
While she runs through an airport in heels, a Marc Jacobs dress, and a Louis Vuitton bag, Mr West chases her.
A child quickly (and rather randomly) sprays his pink Ralph Lauren polo with a bottle of mustard – forcing Mr West to run into a bathroom to rinse his shirt.
The entire video was filmed from Mr West’s vantage point, letting viewers see his mustard stain from the angle of his own eyes. It was filmed at the Ontario International Airport in Canada.
All Falls Down was the third single from Mr West’s debut album The College Dropout, which has sold more than 3million copies since its release one decade ago.
what kind of influential, modern classic™ video & song is all falls down tho
