The Islamist wears Dolce & Gabbana

In the “culture” section of the venerable Atlantic magazine last month, there was a news item I wouldn’t want you to miss: “The Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana has just launched a line of hijabs (headscarves) and abayas (cloaks) in the label’s signature playful, theatrical aesthetic.”

The article’s author, “fashion historian” Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell, goes on to wax enthusiastic about how these “pieces” are being “accessorized,” including with “oversized sunglasses, cocktail rings, stilettos, and statement bags.” She saves for the last paragraph, her analysis of the deep meaning of these stylistic innovations…

    …”statement bags”…wtf? For pistols or an SMG?

  • These are the two Gay designers who were “excommunicated” by Gay militants when they came out against Gay marriage. Gay militants are fascists and do not believe in free speech and freedom of conscience. Dolce and Gabbana demonstrated that there are still a few Gays around that have not yet submitted to the god of fascism.

    I hope they haven’t abandoned that principle when dealing with Islamo-fascism.

      They haven’t abandoned the principle of making money.

    Fashion is vicarious fetishism.
