Bernie Sanders Talks About Being A Fashion Icon / Balenciaga Muse
Bernie Sanders doesn't just have great politics, the man has a keen eye for style and design. His presidential campaign graphics informed Denma Gvasalia's Balenciaga menswear collection earlier this year, and he has finally commented on his sartorial influence.
The appropriation of Bern's logo that covered the collections bomber jackets, scarves and hoodies did not escape CNN reporter Jake Tapper — even if Jake struggled to pronounce the houses name. He asks Bernie about the "bizarre sighting at Parish Fashion Week" and if he ever thought he would become a fashion icon.
To which Bernie cutely chuckles and says "Of my many attributes, being a great dresser or fashion maven is not one of them." So modest, Bern!
