It’s CULTED with your Thursday NEWS RUSH.
First up, BOBBLEHAUS has launched a genderless streetwear brand inspired by New York and Shanghai youth culture.
CEO Ophelia Chen said “people are attracted to great design, regardless of the gender it’s categorized under and who should tell others how they wear it”.
The BOBBLEHAUS SS20 collection launches tomorrow on the brand’s web store with prices ranging from $88 to $288.
Next up, Fred Perry has received racist backlash after posting their latest campaign.
The British label only featured poc models in the collection images and racists have been quick to comment. Some customers are calling for a boycott of the label with one commenting “it seems I’m no longer required as a customer”, with another branding the campaign as “diversity bollocks”.
Personally we love the campaign and would love to see more brands follow Fred Perry’s lead.
And to round off today, Vogue and the CFDA have launched an e-commerce hub on Amazon that will sell items from 20 independent designers.
Branded as ‘A Common Thread’, the store aims to help designers who are struggling as a result of the pandemic.
That’s all for today’s news.
It’s Sam with CULTED. Stay safe and have a great day.
