Greenpeace study: Dangerous chemicals in Shein clothing violate EU regulations

Tough times for Chinese ultra fast fashion giant Shein - first it was plagued by accusations of plagiarism and then a British documentary found that workers in some Shein factories in China are paid the equivalent of only three cents per garment and have to work 18-hour shifts. Now it's about the clothes themselves - Greenpeace Germany tested some of them and found that there are often dangerous chemicals in the clothes sold by Shein.

Maximalism, Romanticism and Nostalgia: The best of Alessandro Michele at Gucci

It is official, Alessandro Michele is leaving Gucci. In his nearly eight years at the helm of the Florentine fashion house, for which Michele worked for a total of 20 years, his name became synonymous with Gucci. While Fashion can be intimidating, self-indulgent and painstakingly serious, Michele infused the industry with some much-needed wonder, curiosity and whimsy. He was a child of Gucci, having gone up the ranks within the company, working both under previous creative directors Tom Ford and Frida Giannini but taking a decidedly different route with the brand when he took the helm in 2015. Alessandro Michele was “curiouser and curiouser”, leading the pack down a rabbit hole of vintage Bohemia, eccentricity and eclecticism.
