Take Back the Color Orange II?
Haaretz has an article about all the orange clothing from this year's Spring fashion collections. Apparently, as in seasons past, clothing and accessories in the color orange have been quite the fashion trend. Unfortunately, these orange fashion collections are not exactly flying off the shelves this year, due to the widespread wearing of the color by those protesting against the disengagement. According to the article, many stores are finding themselves stuck with large amount of orange inventory, that they cannot sell even when they steeply discount it. I myself noticed a similar trend of people avoiding the color so as not to be seen as trying to make a political statement, right here. One fashion designer, Ronen Cohen, is seemingly quite perturbed by the phenomenon:
I myself love orange, and at an event in my store recently I purposely wore orange: They won't take the color away from me.Good luck with that.
