Adidas by Stella McCartney
Fashionista, Stella McCartney was commissioned recently to design a new range of adidas sport shoes. In accordance with adidas she has redesigned a football boot made out of kangaroo skin. The news has already caused concern with animal rights campaigners as well as a condemnation from her father, Sir Paul McCartney. Macca is committed vegetarian and spokesperson against the use of animal skin. adidas have been accused of being irresponsible for using the marsupial’s skin for their sports shoes however there is no evidence millions of kangaroos are being slaughtered for this purpose. There are several types of kangaroo and culling does take place but the species used in footwear are farmed specifically and not part of the cull. In Australia feral kangaroos are responsible for millions of dollars of damage to arable land.

Cheap Chic Revolution has started
Sarah Jessica Parker’s new Bitten label collection is about to be available, exclusively at Steve & Barry’s stores. The collection contains over 500 women’s items, not one of which exceeds $19.98 (US). Bitten goes up to XXL in tops, size 22 in bottoms and size 11 in footwear. Many of the Bitten garments have been made in China and according to the chief of Steve and Barry‘s, are made in factories operating fair-labour policy. The ‘Cheap chic’ costs are also contained by folding the goods in a less labour intensive way and using transport only when the carriers are full. Steve and Barry’s are also avoiding the use of expensive ad campaigns, preferring word of moth. Thin profit margins are offset with high volume turn over and Steve & Barry’s are anticipating past success with Stephon Marbury (New York Knicks)‘‘Starbury’’ basketball shoes.
