Alden got the shirt from Aimee Hashim of LoveLuxeBags, which currently sells it for PHP22,000.

Stefano and the other half d D&G, Domenico Dolce, launched the shirt early this month after a number of netizens used the hashtag #BoycottDolceGabbana on the brands official Instagram accounts.

The two designers were criticized after associating their brand to U.S. First Lady Melania Trump.

Last May, Melania wore a 51,500-dollar (or PHP2.6 million) floral D&G jacket during the G7 Summit in Sicily, Italy.

Elle reported that the amount drew flak because it was "$7,000 more than her countrymen's yearly salary."

The brand reposted a photo of Melania on its official Instagram account with several heart emojis and the hashtag #DGWoman.
