Not every celebrity has to be an activist. But it’s not ‘activism’ to choose not to wear a brand, you just wear something else and don’t give those designers a platform.

They’re all getting paid $ to wear it and that’s what I judge.

Realistically I don't really care. It's not a requirement for me that celebs be political or activists cause thats not what they signed up for. If they are thats fine and some point given the nature of the industry they'll contradict themselves for it.

At best I just make a mental note of it.

Aww Yalitzia looks pretty in her dress!

I mean if Chanel with it’s Nazi history is fine then D&G bouncing back is no surprise.

There are a couple of decades between Chanel's Nazi past and DG's recent 'past'.

I do get weirded out when people are fannish over Coco herself or consider her their icon - that she was a Nazi agent is literally in the wikipedia, it's impossible to miss.

Also, Chanel left France right after liberation, she didn't reopen her fashion house until the 50s (with money from the Wertheimers!), and she was not popular in France at that point. Her support came from Brits and Americans, who were generally more forgiving of collabos.

Obviously D&G are not as bad as Nazi agents, but Americans being quick to forgive fancy racists is pretty on brand for us.

don't forget hugo boss literally designed the nazi uniforms. though chanel's history is very interesting in that the company was owned and financed by a jewish family, she tried to usurp them using france's antisemitic ownership laws but they were a step ahead of her, but then they still ended up financing her and her brand after the war.
