Starting in February of next year, when you bring in a bag of old clothes to H&M, the company will recycle them for you and you’ll be rewarded with a discount voucher to buy some new ones. Pretty cool, right? The clothing exchange discount is part of H&M’s new iCollect recycling program, which aims to reduce the massive amount of waste produced by the clothing industry. Not only is the plan good for the earth, it’s also a smart PR move: you might remember a couple years ago when H&M found itself in hot water after The New York Times revealed the company routinely destroyed unsold clothing–including winter coats and gloves–that would gladly be accepted by shelters and charities.

Court Ruling Protects Louboutin’s Fancy Red Soles

Fake Louboutins
Black pumps plus red paint = DIY knockoffs. Read More »

Thanks to Christian Louboutin’s lawsuit, today we all have the chance to read a very serious court ruling in which a judge makes reference to that ubiquitous and kind of terrible fashion term, “pop of color.” It all started last year when Louboutin claimed that a pair of red-soled heels by Yves Saint Laurent infringed on their trademark design. A lower court judge acknowledged the popularity of the Louboutin red sole and its visibility as a status symbol, but ruled that a single color could not be trademarked. Yesterday in a court of appeals, Judge José A. Cabranes handed down a verdict in favor of Louboutin, arguing that it is “the contrast between the sole and the upper that causes the sole to ‘pop’ and to distinguish its creator.” Not sure how this might affect all those DIYers who have been faking their own Loubs with a coat of red paint, but you might want to choose a different color to “pop,” just in case… [NYT] [Photo via Net-A-Porter]
