I'd like to believe that Ian would have appreciated that more than the constant bastardization of the Unknown Pleasures album artwork.

If this actually happens...I give up. H&M already suffocate the world with their trash (a quite literal description if those news reports of them destroying/burning unsold clothes from a few years ago are true), do they need to turn their hands onto higher tier fashion?

Then again I suppose anyone with money can do it these days, Kanye has a collection after all

Couldn't agree more! I cannot really be surprised by massive chain H&M any more. Whatever they do it becomes a success.

If this luxury initiative is executed, it probably will be a smash hit, too, instantly. Mainstream consumers fighting each other while waiting 24 hours in line just to buy the newest H&M-collaboration...

*hushed voice* Hey man, heard you got H&M, how you holding up? Let me know if you need anything, I have friends with H&M too, I know how tough it can be. Maybe we could go shopping when you feel better and maybe you could try some Dick? I know it's not guaranteed, but it could help?

In all seriousness, if it does happen (and the venture survives), it really makes you wonder how warped the fast-fashion consumer market is. And it'll be interesting to see how this move affects other fast-fashion giants and luxury houses.

The gist of this tenuously sensical bullshit is that the law don't apply to you if the law goes against your religious beliefs, i.e. you can fire homos and evict your brown skinned tenants with impunity from anti-discrimination ordinances.

To settle your blood pressure before you fire off a reply to this, I give you my friend's reaction:

Quote:
I agree with it up to a point. I don't believe a religious institution should be compelled by law to hire gay people, for example. Or offer adoption services to gay parents.

I think businesses should be given kite-marks, like they do for Kosher products.
They could also have a dinosaur sticker for businesses that supported evolution
and a unicorn sticker for gay friendly establishments

I am very happy for uptight religious white people to segregate themselves in their own special stores
no problem with that at all

they could have a star of david with a bar through it (like no smoking), a unicorn and bar, a dinosaur and bar and a piece of fried chicken and bar
so you would know that the place was totally safe for straight white christians
fried chicken and bar might be controversial. they could have stevie wonder with a bar instead. less hostile ?
now a muslim owned place might just have jew, dinosaur and gay-bar, but be okay with black people, you know ?
see I've got a system all worked out

Not that I agree with the policy, but I thought this was a standard industry practice?

@Mail-Moth and potentially others as well,

there is a huge article about Frank Leder on the german homepage of Financial Times. If there is enough interest, I could try to translate it.

those mainstream high fashion brands that collaborated with H&M really shot themselves in the foot. now it all comes back to bite them in the ass, hehe...

but who cares really? to me there's never been much difference between H&M and stella mccartney anyway.
