Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski rents clothes to benefit GLSEN

Think about any iconic outfit worn by a celebrity that you’d be dying to wear for a day. J.Lo’s Versace dress? Bjork’s swan dress? If you answered “one of the strange eyeAntoni Porowski Strokes T-shirts, Maybe Dream Bigger, But You’re Also Lucky. The influencer chief-actor-author-model-lawyer has in partnership with Wardrobe, a ‘peer rental fashion platform’, to rent clothes from your own closet to benefit an LGBTQ education charity GLSEN.

Wardrobe says Porowski rents nearly 50 clothes, though there are currently fewer than 20 on the site. Those currently available, however, include Strokes, Arcade Fire and The National t-shirts, a striped shirt he wore alongside Justin Trudeau during Montreal Pride in 2018, the Comme des Garçons shirt, and Gucci boots that he wore next to Justin Trudeau. ‘he wore in Taylor Swift’s “You need to calm down, you need to calm down”Video clip, and a James Concannon-designed motorcycle jacket that he wore on the show and which is also now presented on a lego. Unfortunately, none of her naughty headbands or scarves have appeared yet.

It’s one of those partnerships that’s like, of course ok. This makes sense, not in the sense that nonprofits should be funded by the rental of celebrity clothing, but that it was only a matter of time in our “your brand is you” economy. Before famous people rent you a used t-shirt for $ 22. Antoni has a good taste for T-shirts and jackets, and he’s not shilling for Uber Eats, and by all accounts, her pierogies are excellent, and that, aside from trying to do good for LGBTQ students, is about everything we can expect from anyone. But important note, if you want to own it for more than four days, you can still buy it James Dean Queen of Speed shirt, and send a donation to GLSEN while you’re at it.
