Americans urge to boycott Ralph Lauren

Creating an outfit in which the first lady of the United States appears at the inaugural ball is a great honor for every American designer. However, this time many of them, including Tom Ford, have vowed not to dress Melania Trump as a sign of disapproval of her husband’s policies. “I urge fellow designers to boycott the inauguration,” wrote in an open letter to Sophie Telle, a favorite designer of the former first lady Michelle Obama.

However, as we already know, not everyone supported this appeal: at the solemn ceremony of the spouse Donald Trump appeared in the sky-blue pair of Ralph Lauren. Melania didn’t just buy something from Ralph Lauren: a sheath dress and a jacket with a sleeve ¾ (the image was immediately compared with the Jackie Kennedy outfit in 1961) were created specifically for her. “The first lady chose an outfit from a designer who changed American fashion — Ralph Lauren,” said a spokeswoman for Ms. Trump proudly. And it began.

“They immediately attacked us with criticism,” complain brand representatives.The hashtag #BoycottRalphLauren appeared on Twitter, calling for a boycott of the designer.

“Ralph Lauren has offended many women, and we will not forget this. Supporting tyranny is unacceptable! #BoycottRalphLauren #imwithtomford. "

"I never bought anything from @RalphLauren and now I certainly will never buy it"

“Worn Ralph Laren the past 30 years. But now everything! #BoycottRalphLauren »

“I’m putting #RalphLauren on my blacklist. @RalphLauren - no moral principles #boycottRalphLauren »

And this despite the fact that Ralph Lauren himself tried to express his apolitical position, also creating for the inauguration and outfits for Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama.

But jewelry brand Tiffany & Co. He got off with little blood, no one boycotted him, but everyone argues - what was in the blue box that Melania gave to the confused Michelle. Among the guesses is a silver frame for a photo, a key chain for a new home of the now former presidential couple in Washington, or a plate in the shape of a pineapple, in memory of Obama's Kenyan roots.
