The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Zara Called Racist Over ‘White is the New Black’ T-Shirt, America’s Next Top Model Cast Revealed, and Kelly Osbourne Unveils HSN Collection

white is the new black zara

  • Fast fashion retailer Zara has come under fire for their “White is the new black” tee. Though the slogan shirt can’t be found on the company’s site now, the brand drew ire from the public when media outlets began to feature it on their sites, most citing the first posting to fashion blogger Kristiana V. While Kristiana notes that she took the shirt in a trend context, many believe it was short sighted and insenstive of the brand to print the tees at all. Hmm…what do you think? (NY Post)


  • This weekend, Diesel opened their first pop-up shop in Williamsburg, called 101.  With Nicola Formichetti’s Fall 2014 collection for the brand, the shop was designed to be a “slightly sinister, refractive and prismatic spatial instrument that could be fine tuned to portray various visual effects.”  If you head over, expect to also see candles from Brooklyn Candle Studio and t-shirts by Inez & Vinoodh.

  • America Next Top Model returns tonight on the CW for it’s 21 cycle with both male and female contestants.  With Tyra Banks, Kelly Cutrone and Ms. J Alexander as judges (model Rob Evans and stylist Johnny Wujek are both out) the network has revealed the entire cast. Model Chantelle Brown makes headlines due to her skin condition, vitiligo. Will you be tuning in? (Fashion Gone Rogue)


  • As the New York Fashion Week calendar steadily balloons in size — it’s really becoming a problem guys — yet another label has joined the line up.  Zoe Jordan, a designer who has previously shown with the British Fashion Council at London Fashion Week, will be showing at Milk Studios at NYFW this season. The designer was a finalist for the BFC/Vogue Designer Fund in 2012 only a year after she launched her brand. She plans to show garments that are a “tribute to the grown-up tomboy in her urban environment with an energetic minimalism and international heritage.” (Vogue UK)


  • For the plus-sized bloggers boycotting Target for not offering sizes above 16, say hello to Kelly Osbourne’s Stories line. Having oscillated from a size 0 to a 16 herself, Osbourne’s new line offers sizes 0 to 24 and debuts on HSN September 25th. Most fabrics in the 13 piece range incorporate lots of stretch; expect to see pencil skirts, moto jackets trimmed in faux leather, and polka-dot jumpsuits. (WWD)
