Renzo Rosso Takes on Diesel’s Challenges by ‘Faking’ It

Renzo Rosso, the Italian fashion titan and Diesel founder, knows he has a lot of work to do. “We need Diesel to be cool again,” Rosso admitted. “We need people to start talking again about Diesel.
“Diesel was born with me,” he added. “I’m back to give my DNA. I created a good team of people, young people, very modern Millennials. They make me younger with the creation of products that are really connecting with what the young customer wants. The way we communicate, what we are communicating, we’re always working to bring some crazy fun with irony.”
In other words, to take Diesel back to where it used to be, when its ads in the Nineties were known for their quirky, ironic tone. And that is what the brand tried to do with its latest stunt.
A Deisel store — intentionally misspelled — on Friday opened on Broadway and Canal Street, the epicenter of counterfeiting, where lean-tos selling fake designer logos such as Gucci and Prada have long proliferated. The unit will operate through Tuesday or until inventory runs out. An e-commerce site will then bow for European customers.
Unsuspecting Diesel shoppers didn’t initially realize the items they bought were one-of-a kind pieces

The Welcome Challenges of Marriage Equality

For some time now, my spouse and I have been bickering over where we should live in our retirement years. She, being a child from the South, and me, being from the North, well, we have our tensions. I have jokingly dubbed them our “Mason-Dixon line feud.” We are not stretching our imaginations much to feel some of the same concerns our enslaved ancestors must have encountered as they considered the free states up North.

My spouse is tied to the weather of the South — a moist, subtropical climate with sultry summers. I like the four seasons of the North, but could live in autumn all year round.

During particularly heated battles, I have questioned if her desire to live in Georgia was worth living in a state that didn’t recognize our marriage. Our marriage would be de facto dissolved.

Our ongoing exhaustive argument gained a new complication (in my mind, at least) with last week’s historic Supreme Court ruling — Obergefell v. Hodge — that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy was once again the swing vote on this tough ruling. Kennedy wrote all recent decisions protecting LGBTQ rights, including the 2003 Lawrence v. Texas — which struck down sodomy laws that targeted gay men; and the 2013 US v. Windsor — recognizing and providing federal benefits to same-sex married couple in states where their marriages were legal. His argument last week was Loving v. Virginia (1967) redux, showing how these two historic struggles for marriage equality are interconnected.

Of course, I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision. It would have been both wrong-hearted and wrong-headed to rule otherwise.

But with victory comes backlash. This change in law will not come easy. A movement is already afoot with a 50-state plan to pass “Religious Freedom Restoration” acts to roll back progress.

As the country battles this issue on a new front, we should hold on to Thomas Jefferson‘s words about how change is required for progress:

“I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But . . . laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also, and keep pace with the times.”

Same-sex marriage is of our times. And it’s democracy at its best.

I understand democracy to be an ongoing process, where people are part of a participatory government working to dismantle all existing discriminatory laws truncating their full participation in society.

But democracy can only begin to work when those relegated to the fringes of society can sample what those in society take for granted as their inalienable rights. The right to marry regardless of a couple’s sexual orientation or gender identity is now one of them. How wonderful to know that a same-sex couple in Mississippi has the same right to marry as someone here in Massachusetts.

Back to the challenge in my home: My spouse is all smiles now with this new ruling. She has been doing what I call “nicey nicey,” which is her way of using charm to wear down my recalcitrant stance on issues.

In celebration of Obergefell v. Hodge we went out for drinks at Legal Sea Foods in Harvard Square. While enjoying the evening summer breeze, my spouse said we could have this experience all year if we moved to a milder climate.

I snapped back and said, “I ain’t moving to Georgia!”

And that’s what marriage equality looks like.

Eckhart Tolle on Embracing Life’s Challenges

Eckhart Tolle discusses embracing the limitations life presents to us, instead of resisting the present moment. Challenges and difficulties are a natural part of life, but when we meet challenges with negativity we create more suffering for ourselves.

Crisis situations — personal or collective — offer us the possibility of opening to a new way of being in the world.
We can no longer believe the media’s message of fear– fear is an unconscious response that creates more negativity.

Change is absolutely necessary for the world to survive and evolve.

Emotional Ad Starring Lesbian Couple Challenges India’s Anti-Gay Laws

Homosexuality may be a criminal offense in India, but that hasn’t stopped beautiful ads like this one from challenging the country’s acceptance of same-sex couples.

Titled “The Visit,” the ad for Anouk Ethnic apparel features a lesbian couple getting ready to meet one of the women’s parents for the first time. Time noted that since it was released 10 days ago, the online video has been viewed 3 million times.

“We tried to avoid the stereotypes associated with gay people,” Avishek Ghosh, a partner at the production house who made the video, told the Times of India. “There was no one woman looking more masculine or feminine in the film. We tried to give it a candid feel like it is any other couple being apprehensive about meeting the parents.”

While the ad has been hailed as a first, Indian news site Daily O noted that a much shorter, less emotionally wrought ad for Fastrack watches featured a lesbian couple two years ago.

India made homosexual sex acts a crime punishable by 10 years in prison in 2013, but activists are continually challenging the ruling through different media channels. Last month, Indian gay rights advocate Harish Iyer made headlines when his family published India’s first-known man-seeking-man matrimonial ad in a newspaper.

Aspiring Teen Model Challenges Society’s Stereotypes Of Down Syndrome: ‘Exposure Will Create Acceptance’

Madeline Stuart is an 18-year-old aspiring model, and she’s here to challenge society’s rigid definition of what “beautiful” is.

Thank you for your support, please share my page and invite your friends to like it. I love you all xx

Posted by Madeline getting Downs to modelling on Friday, May 8, 2015

Madeline, who lives in Brisbane, Australia, has Down syndrome. She writes on her Facebook page that she believes “modeling will help change [society’s] view of people with Down syndrome.”

“Exposure will help to create acceptance,” she says.

According to WPVI-TV, Madeline struggled with her weight as a youngster. Thanks to healthy eating and exercise, the teen lost 45 pounds. Madeline now dances, swims and does gymnastics and cheerleading.

Madeline’s mom, Rosanne Stuart, said she hopes her daughter will inspire other individuals with Down syndrome to make similarly positive lifestyle choices. Studies have suggested that children with Down syndrome are more prone to be overweight.

“People with Down syndrome can do anything,” Stuart told Buzzfeed. “They just do it at their own pace. Give them a chance and you will be rewarded beyond your greatest expectations.”

“I think it is time people realized that people with Down syndrome can be sexy and beautiful and should be celebrated,” she added.

Earlier this year, actress Jamie Brewer became the first person with Down syndrome to ever walk the runway at New York Fashion Week.

According to Buzzfeed, Madeline — who is already landing modeling gigs — is currently looking for an agent.

In the meantime, the teen is winning the Interwebs. She has more than 150,000 Facebook fans so far.

“I am so happy and blessed,” Madeline wrote on Facebook Monday as her story went viral. “So happy that everyone is sharing the love,” she said in a later post.

Sarah Deragon’s ‘The Identity Project’ Challenges The Way We Think About Queer Identity

“The Identity Project,” from photographer Sarah Deragon, challenges the way that we compartmentalize and think about queerness and identity.

The photo series captures the way subjects want to present themselves to the world around them and communicate their personal ways of self-identifying. Mainstream understandings of what it means to be lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) tend to be narrow and specific, but with “The Identity Project,” we can see the infinite shades and hues of queerness that make up the spectrum of human identity.

dapper

The Huffington Post chatted with Deragon this week about her work and how the project has grown.

The Huffington Post: What is your driving vision for The Identity Project?
Sarah Deragon: My main vision for The Identity Project is to expand what we normally understand to be the LGBTQ communities. I wanted to create a photo project that allowed participants to self-identify and stand up and be seen for who they really are. I honestly thought that the project would be a small collection of 50 or so photographs, but the response to the project was so profound that I decided to expand it and travel to several US cities like New York City, Portland, Chicago and soon Austin to photograph more people. I imagine that this will be an ongoing project for me throughout my lifetime.
