Side-Eye: Chanel Runway Show Concludes With Second Wave “Feminist Protest”

This is why people think fashion is stupid. Because designers like Karl Lagerfeld, who seriously could give two shits about women’s rights, co-opts the feminist movement as some sort of aesthetic inspiration for his fashion mood board and then parades an array of mostly white, skinny models down the runway holding ridiculous signs like “Free Freedom,” “We Can Match The Machos,” “Be Your Own Stylist,” “Boys Should Get Pregnant Too” and “Tweed Is Better Than Tweet.” I get the tenuous connection between the designs for his Spring 2015 collection, which was basically his take on fashion for working women, and the second wave feminist movement, I GUESS, but come on. This is so dumb it hurts my eyes to look at.
