Urban Outfitters Under Fire

The retail chain is taking flack this week for a collection of "Navajo"-inspired clothing that includes underwear, socks and flasks.

According to the New York Daily News, a consumer is challenging the brand to explain how they're able to use the "Navajo" name (when it's trademarked by the Navajo Nation).

Urban Outfitters is also being accused of misleading the consumer in branding the line as though it were produced by Native American workers.



The Attorney General of the Navajo Nation has contacted the retailer before now, but nothing reportedly has happened with those communications.

Under federal law, it is illegal to falsely brand something as made by Native Americans.

The line is completely focused on the woman: ensembles featuring leopard prints, metallic details and ruffles are perfect for the approaching holiday party season. 

 

 

 

 

The 17-piece collection will debut online and in 225 stores nationwide on October 26th. The line ranges in price  between $50 to $150. It includes structured jackets, tuxedo pants, embellished blouses, single-shoulder and strapless dresses.

Paris Fashion Week: Yves Saint Laurent

Yves Saint Laurent's Spring 2012 collection featured rich jewel tones and sleek silhouettes. The continued rumors that Stefano Pilati is leaving the company seemed to have no affect on the strong presentation that was delivered at the lavish Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sharply tailored jacquard trousers and structured coats, menswear inspired pieces echoing the days of YSL's past, paraded down the runway. 

 

Femininity presented itself in the way of sexy, plunging necklines on halter tops, ruffle detailing on blouses and onthe hemlines of skirts. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For evening wear, sheer black gowns with daring, deep cuts in the front shimmered and sparkled with gold embellishments. We're sure to see a few of these gowns on the red carpet. 

Pilati did not disappoint with accessories either. The shoes alone will be on the YSL lady's must have list for spring, including ankle wrap flats, gold-plated loafers & cap toe pumps.

Wu's famous for his ladylike, elegant designs and this collection will be no different, drawing inspiration from the sophistication of the 1960's. Feminine dresses and separates that are easily convertible from day to evening along with playful handbags and scarves.
