PREACH IT! Poverty by Malawi, pants by Malandrino
Per the Malandrino press release: “During a recent visit to the Millennium Village in Lilongwe, Malawi, Madonna wore pants by Malandrino. Accompanied with her daughter Mercy, the icon wore a pair of Desert harem pants in noir/ivory tweed from the spring/summer 2010 Malandrino collection.”
Full disclosure: In the press release, the word Malandrino was presented in a larger font, sort of like this: MALANDRINO.
And in case you were wondering, you too can buy Madonna’s incredible, iconic Malawi poverty pants.
“The Desert pants are currently available by special order,” the press release says.
We called the publicist who sent out the release, hoping we could at least learn how much it would cost us to take in Millennium Village in style -- maybe the Africa pants fall into the same $750 price range as these babies? -- but we were told ...
Stock up before your next trip to Haiti!
