Read today’s dose of chic intel right here…
Gucci Is Going Carbon Neutral (Fast Company)
Yesterday, Gucci announced a plan to become completely carbon neutral throughout its entire supply chain. Building on the plan it set out in 2015 to reduce its carbon emissions, Gucci will offset its carbon emissions. The house is partnering with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol to measure emissions not only in its own factories and property, but also those created by its third-party suppliers. “The time for talking is over,” says Marco Bizzarri, CEO of Gucci. “At a certain point you need to act. As a brand, you can keep getting better and fine-tuning your processes—and we are more than happy to do that. But today is the moment to act.”
Courtney Love and Joss Sackler Are Still Fighting About Fashion Week (Page Six)
On Monday, Courtney Love revealed that LBV, a fashion brand co-owned by Joss Sackler, offered her $100,000 to attend their fashion show. LBV says it has no connection to Perdue Pharma — the company which produced OxyContin and is owned by the Sackler family — but that wasn’t enough for Love, who put the brand on blast. In the wake of the story, LBV fired back, saying Love actually asked for more money to attend. But Love claims she requested the money go to charity.
In a series of Instagram posts, Love lambasted Sackler. “I should have asked for 250 MILLION DOLLARS A DAY,” she wrote. “In hindsight, you were let off so easy… I have 0 issue with my naivety about your exact role as the evil witch, of the American opioid crises, I simply thought you were some dumb ass socialite with money to burn.. why not ask for a bunch for charity?… The reason I didn’t take your greasy , filthy money to donate joss is because there’s no way I could have stood to be near you or your ‘people.’” Get ’em, Courtney!
