The company Abercrombie & Fitch has come under fire lately. And reasonably so.
A 2006 interview with A&F CEO Mike Jeffries went viral in the past couple of weeks, where he appears to have no conscience in saying something as insulting as this:
“Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally vanilla.”
Ladies (and maybe gents), make this the only video you watch today (hell, watch it 10 times even!) because you won’t regret it.
Starring in a new H&M ad directed by Guy Ritchie, soccer star David Beckham is seen running half-naked around a Los Angeles neighbourhood while only in his boxer briefs and a pair of slippers.
Yes, this is slightly an objectification of Beckham’s body. But if he has no problem with showing off his goods, then THAT’S COMPLETELY FINE WITH ME. In fact, if there were more videos like this, I think the world would be a happier place.
Watch the video here:
Looks like Drake is truly living up to his motto.
With his hit “The Motto” making the acronym YOLO (you only live once) an annoyingly pervasive phrase for the past year, Drake thinks he is entitled to a pay cheque with his famous tagline appearing on merchandise everywhere.
Spending his Christmas Eve strolling around Macy’s and Walgreens, the rapper took a couple of pictures on his Instagram page to show his dismay with the label appearing on clothing such as hats and T-shirts.
Under the image from Walgreens, which features a stack of tacky caps, Drake wrote, “Walgreens … you gotta either chill or cut the cheque.”
And under the photo from Macy’s, which features a T-shirt featuring Peanuts characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy, he added, “Macy’s … same goes for you.”
I can’t even blame Drake for being offended. Seeing Snoopy and Charlie Brown used like that is JUST disrespectful.
But even if Drake is planning to ask for the rights to “YOLO”, the rapper might run into some trouble. According to Gawker, there has been already more than 100 U.S. trademark applications to use the acronym on an array of different products.
But honest to God, if I see another shirt or hat with the tagline YOLO on it, I’m going to have a fit.
Lil’ Wayne is expanding his empire with a skateboard clothing line. He will debut his Trukfit apparel line at the Agenda trade show in Long Beach, California. Wayne is passionate about skateboarding and street culture, so this should be a fit.
“Lil Wayne has long been recognized as a music and pop culture icon,” said Trukfit representative Sarah Cunningham. “He has developed a unique style — both sonically and visually — and extending his brand and vision into apparel was a natural progression. As Lil Wayne is passionate about skateboarding, it only made sense for him to infuse that passion into Trukfit.”
Sarah also says that Wayne is so serious about skateboarding that he often rides at the local park after getting done with a show.
Although Jennifer Lopez is busy with American Idol, she still has time to partner with Kohl’s for a new clothing line.
To promote the new initiative, JLO and Kohl’s created a couple of videos feature Jennifer hard at work at Kohl’s headquarters.
“Amy’s new Fred Perry collection out now,” her father, Mitch Winehouse, tweeted Thursday. “It is fabulous. All profits to Amy’s foundation.”
Perry posted a similar statement on the collection’s website, saying, “After much consideration and with the blessing of Amy’s family, we have decided to release the AW11 Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry Collection. Amy was passionate and dedicated to the collaboration and her signature style is clearly stamped across each piece. In such circumstances, the usual royalties and fees from the collection will be donated to the soon to be established Amy Winehouse Foundation.”
What do you think about the line?
Not only can you admire Kristin Davis’ taste in fashion, but now you can dress like the “Sex and the City” star too!
According to PerezHilton.com, Davis, who plays Charlotte on the hit series and movie “Sex and the City,” will launch her own clothing line at Belk department stores this fall.
Davis says that her clothing line is similar to her “Sex and the City” character’s fashion.
“Charlotte dresses in a very feminine way, and I love her playful nature. I grew up shopping at Belk. It was the nicest store we had, and I’d save my allowance to go.”
The collection is said to consist of very feminine clothing and accessories, and will include clothing, undergarments, shoes, jewelry, and purses.
Items are set to cost between $38 to $240, which is much cheaper than a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes.
Co-star Sarah Jessica Parker already has her own clothing line, BITTEN.
Hayden Panettiere is 18, and now you can get into her pants!
The Heroes star is auctioning off some of her wardrobe on PanettiereCloset.com, in order to raise funds for the Save The Whales Again campaign.
The cause is close to Panettiere’s heart, after she visited Tiji, Japan last fall. She joined a group of peaceful protestors, and swam out on a surf board to the nets where fisherman had trapped a group of whales. Panettiere and her friends wanted to cut the nets and set the animals free, but soon the fishermen had caught up to them and became violent, even attempting to harm the protestors with their boat’s propeller. Panettiere has since found out that there is a warrant for her arrest in Japan.
Though the new site has some kinks that need to be worked out, some of the most popular items of Panettiere’s clothing will be auctioned off in the coming days. The site offers bottoms, caps, dresses, hoodies, outerward, shirts, shoes, watches, and more, all of which were donated by Panettiere. The items are not necessarily right off Panettiere’s back, however: the site explains that many of the items “have never been worn, while some have been worn by Hayden once. (e.g. to awards ceremonies, photo shoots, etc.)”
