I don't talk about issues much, but the Ksubi animal cruelty issue has really pissed me off. If you haven't heard about it there was an article in the Daily Telegraph here. Seriously, why would you think that it would be a good idea to use doves as props at a party & frighten & torture them? Fashion Hayley has mentioned the party a few times on her blog, which is where I read about it & it sounded hideous.

Ksubi in the past have also used live rats in runway shows so you have to wonder about a fashion label that has to resort to stunts using live animals to get media attention.

  1. Hmmm, why would you think it would be a good idea ... perhaps because they are thoughtless twits with an empathy bypass? I would like to say something like they've jumped the shark and are an early to mid-noughties kinda brand cannibalised by Supre and seen on boys who wear white fedoras and genitalia-reveaing denim on Chapel Street, but bringing their poor design ethos in to it would be beside the point and a cheap shot, and there's clearly enough to despise them for anyway. Then again, a cheap shot might be the best that the poor doves get, so stuff it.
