A unisex Spongebob-themed T-shirt made by one of New York's & # 39; it girl & # 39; designers was slammed by Nickelodeon fans wondering how the garment could justify its $ 160 prize.
The garment was made in & # 39; special collaboration & # 39; between Sandy Liang and Spongebob, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the animation series.
Fans of the cult-favorite underwater cartoon, however, quickly wondered who the target audience was & # 39; because they called for the cost of the recycled cotton T-shirt.
Would you pay $ 160? A Spongebob collaboration T-shirt from a NYC designer has been slammed by fans of the cartoon who found the piece too expensive in limited numbers
Collector's item: the image shows the popular characters of the show that wear designs from Sandy Liang
The illustration shows the beloved characters from the long-running series – Sandy Cheeks, Patrick Star, Spongebob and Squidward – who wear the designer's signature fleeces and outerwear.
The piece – made in LA – attracted bewildered commentators when it was shared with the Nickelodeon Style Instagram account.
& # 39; Who is the target audience for this for $ 160 for a Spongebob T-shirt, & # 39; a user asked.
Another woman said she bought one, but soon changed her tune when she realized the price.
& # 39; Oh wow, never mind, lol, I didn't even view the site I derived. I was willing to pay $ 30, but not 160, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; Bruh $ 160, & # 39; another said – causing someone to respond, & Exactly. P ** seduced me when I saw that. & # 39;
& # 39; $ 160 for a t-shirt goodbye, & # 39; said one person, while another agreed, & # 39; 160 $ ?? For which & # 39 ;.
However, others consider the T-shirt to be a fair price – because the small size has sold out online less than a day after the debut on the site.
When Sandy shared it with her own 95,000 followers, she called it a & # 39; dream collaboration that came true & # 39 ;.
She explained that she was inspired by her childhood when drawing the characters, she dressed in her classic designs & # 39; custom shearling & # 39; and & # 39; clarinet fleece & # 39 ;.
& # 39; P ** sed off & # 39 ;: The $ 160 price tag seemed to alienate Nickelodeon's fans, who responded to it in the comments
Actresses Brie Larson and Eliza Scanlen (from the fame of Sharp Objects and Little Women) quickly indicated how much they wanted one.
& # 39; WHAT & # 39 ;, Oscar-winning Brie said, while Eliza responded & # 39; Omg !!!!!! & # 39; and tagged her sister.
Sandy approved by Vogue has found fans in Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Charlie XCX and Alison Brie.
Her outerwear – such as $ 525 fleeces in sorbets and curly sheepskins that sell up to $ 3,900 – put her on the map as an emerging designer.
Because the show celebrates 20 years in the air, Sandy & # 39; s collaboration is just one of many limited edition fashion projects.
