Meet The Model Turned Ocean Warrior Out To Change The Way Fashion Thinks About Plastic

00-tout-maryna
Love it or hate it, plastic is a part of everyday life. Whether you’re sipping from a Starbucks cup or wearing synthetic fabrics, it’s hard to escape its presence. Still, Maryna Linchuk is committed to getting people to rethink their relationship with the material. Teaming with eco-organization Parley, the Belarusian modeling star spent her winter break cleaning up the refuse-covered beaches of the Maldives. Though she’d visited the island for photo shoots in the past, getting a bird’s-eye view of the destruction was an eye-opener for Linchuk. “It’s shocking to me that this material that is so unfriendly, so dangerous for animals, and potentially toxic to us has become so normal in our society,” says Linchuk over email. “A plastic...

WTH Is Zara Selling a Skirt Featuring a Pepe the Frog Look-alike?

zara-skirt-1
Every couple of months, like clockwork, a mass retailer does something so blatantly clumsy that you almost have to wonder whether it was actually intentional. The latest gaffe comes courtesy of Zara in the form a denim skirt that's being criticized for featuring an embroidery that closely resembles Pepe the Frog, a meme that's been appropriated by hate groups. The skirt in question features two frogs: one in the same green shade as Pepe, and one a mirror image in a darker green hue. Both share Pepe's characteristic thin red lips and bulging eyes, which are obscured by sunglasses.

Following their buzzy collaboration on high-fashion refrigerators last Spring, D&G and Italian home appliance company SMEG are teaming up again on a line of chic kitchen appliances.

There are also floral patterns that call to mind D&G's runway designs.
