Sami Mirò is, according to Elle, a "vintage shopping expert, model, and stylist" — but until now she has been, perhaps, more recognizably the girlfriend to former teen idol and current adult "himbo" Zac Efron. Those days are over, however, because Sami Mirò has launched a fashion line, and it will be the number-one influence on post-apocalyptic fashion after the day of judgment have come for us all.
According to Mirò, the line — titled Sami Mirò Vintage — was born earlier this very month, out of Efron's request that she clothe him for the MTV Movie Awards. Mirò designed a truly-cute denim salvage bomber jacket for her boyfriend, but has since pivoted to creating a women's line, featuring $80 denim chokers which are presumably somehow different than hacking the hems off your jeans and tying them around your neck, and $210 sheer bodysuits with questionably-supportive, haphazardly-cut scrap bras for sexy Little Match Girls. Mirò fails to cite Kim Kardashian's second (or third?) most famous selfie as inspiration, or any other obvious influences such as, "Adam and Eve and their fig leaves" or "that thing when a piece of garbage blows against your body in a strong wind."
In March of 2017, when we're three months into the Trump presidency permawinter and scrounging the yuuuuuuge rag pile for threads to cover our broken dignity, think of Sami Mirò, trendsetter.
