Dolce & Gabbana Offers Racist Earrings For Spring 2013

Dolce & Gabbana Offers Racist Earrings For Spring 2013

Every time we critisize someone or some brand for racism, we are called any number of names–usually along the lines of PC, stupid, or unfamiliar with words (“No, the Klan is racist,” which means that… that other stuff can’t be, we guess?). But our absolute favorite pseudo-argument is, “You’re racist for seeing it that way.” So, we’re cutting that off at the pass. More »

Dolce & Gabbana Hired Regular People (Instead Of Models!) For Their Runway Show

Dolce & Gabbana Hired Regular People (Instead Of Models!) For Their Runway Show

Dolce & Gabbana are feeling “authentic,” a term you may not immediately associate with the brand (unlike “boobs” or “whiskered jeans”). For their Spring 2013 men’s Ready-To-Wear show, they traveled to an imaginary 1950s Sicily and presented a vast collection meant to realize the period. And inside all those voluminous retro proportions and horizontal striped pants, the Dolce boys cast real live Sicilians: 70 men and boys from around the island, not one of them a professional model. While much of the cast is clearly chiseled enough to moonlight on the catwalk, plenty more of them are strikingly normal, peculiar-looking and perhaps a little frightened. We must say, we kind of like seeing fantastical clothes on civilians, which removes much of the pageantry and adds a strange, welcome dose of (weird!) authenticity. More »

I mean, I think it’s funny to a fashion crowd, but a lot of people are just going to be like ‘ why does that girl have tomatoes all over her dress?” And I say “to-mah-to.” More »

Friday Style Icon: The Ladies of ‘A League Of Their Own’

Friday Style Icon: The Ladies of 'A League Of Their Own'

Last week Jennifer and I were figuring out some upcoming Friday Style Icons because I didn’t want every week to be about mining ’90s movies I liked as a child. And we immediately concluded, Let’s do A League of Their Own! Unfortunately, A League of Their Own is the opposite of what we were trying to do. So I did a gallery of awesome Chloe Sevigny looks. This week, as we were compiling stuff for our tribute to the ladysports classics, intrepid intern Jill was like, “Just like Nylon!” and we were like, “WHAA?” Then she broke our fucking hearts by showing us a spread in this month’s Nylon about makeup inspired by A League of Their Own. Since we’d already gotten a bunch of images together, we were like, fuck it, it’s okay, people can accept that two separate entities arrived at the same obscure idea independently. Right? Right?
