Re: “Introducing: The F Word

Citron prefers Facebook’s approach, where harassment and bullying are forbidden as opposed to the more extensive “targeted abuse” that Twitter forbids.” I’d want them to get closer to what Facebook does: create community norms of respect,” she says. But Citron does not think that Facebook, cheap jerseys, and other communication platforms can solve the online harassment problem alone. Her book comprehensively catalogs the many forms of online harassment – from revenge porn to anonymous cyber mobs – arguing that we need more robust laws to criminalize it and that law enforcement needs to take the cases more seriously.

Re: “The Return of the Backpack

I've been looking for a bag to replace my too-worn-to-be-hip jansport (a highschool relic) for some time - Filson appears to be the solution.

Re: “Mark Your Calendars

So after reading your "Oh Hey, H&M? Fuck you" piece, I'm a bit perplexed as to why you would suggest shopping the new collection at H&M. Editorial guidelines do exist at The L, yes? Oh, wait it's The L...what was I thinking?

Re: “Your Fashion Week(s) Primer

You’ve really hit the nail on the head, Laurel. As we all know, the reason we’re in this financial mess is because of pure greed, and the fashion industry takes no exception to this. These designers drastically cut their production costs by outsourcing to China, etc. while still charging the same retail prices. Lower overhead = higher profit; No U.S. Jobs = 10% National Unemployment rate. Enough is enough already.

The fashion industry is also in the same pathetic shape as the music industry: bloated, over-processed, and self-important. The resulting equation: Music + Fashion = Disney. No individuality, no innovation, no creativity. It’s all BIG “business as usual”.

Music and Fashion Design are about celebrating evolution and risk, going against the so-called grain. For instance, why would any musician ever be asked “Who are you wearing?” And more importantly, why are they answering with “Chanel” or “Prada”?

I am an “indie” accessories designer. I live in NYC. I design a backpack called METTLE CASE, named in honor of my gutsy - slightly nutsy - endeavor. Unlike following the fashion herd, I am forging a fashion revolution. Not only is Mettle Case handcrafted in the U.S.A. (what a concept), its form is innovative and its function progressive. As indie designers, we proudly stand in the creative gap, on the fashion fringe – outside the doors of BIG Business. We are not asking to come in… We want everyone to come out.

Re: “How to Dress for Summer Concert Season

Yeah, I wore a strapless dress to the Wilco show at McCarren Pool last summer with my camera strapped around me. It was a bad, bad idea.

Re: “Models Attack!

You tell it sister!! This is so true. I was flipping through old magazines in my apartment and the only "Stunning" faces I can remember are really the classics: Christy, Amber, Naomi and Helena.

I mean Agyness is cute, but...she doesn't cut it.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that during this economical-politico-environmental- revolution brings us some good change.
