Bags with a message for designers
Anti-designer fashion bags.
Why it matters
We have seen the rise of disposable cheap fashion that competes with designer pieces bit now the trend seems to be getting more aggressive. With the recession still full in swing the fashion seems to be shifting towards individual statements such as the ‘Karl who?’ bag that takes a swipe at designer Karl Lagerfield. Could this anti-designer movement last beyond the recessionary times?

The clothing brand Zara has built a new social platform inspired by the ‘street style’ concept. The platform is open to anyone (registration required) interested in uploading pictures of how they style Zara clothes into outfits. In exchange, the most stylish users will receive 300€. The street style trend, born in the blogosphere, has been reinterpreted by the agency Inditex for this social media project (https://people.zara.com).
Victoria’s Secret set up nine pairs of wings through out New York City, inviting women in the city to pose as Victoria’s Secret angels. Women can upload pictures taken with the wings worn by models like Heidi Klum to Victoria’s Secret’s facebook page and share with friends.
