Doutzen Kroes and Christy Turlington petition Victoria’s Secret over misconduct


Top models Christy Turlington and Doutzen Kroes are among 100 models who have signed a petition urging bosses at Victoria’s Secret to protect them from sexual misconduct.

More than 100 models, including Carolyn Murphy, Edie Campbell, Gemma Ward, along with the ’90s supermodel Christy Turlington, and former Dutch Victoria’s Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes, have signed a letter to Victoria’s Secret’s chief executive, John Mehas, urging the brand to take steps to protect contractors like models from sexual misconduct. Non-profit organisation Model Alliance posted a copy of the letter on Twitter, with the text reading:

In the past few weeks, we have heard numerous allegations of sexual assault, alleged rape, and sex trafficking of models and aspiring models. While these allegations may not have been aimed at Victoria’s Secret directly, it is clear that your company has a crucial role to play in remedying the situation.

It is clear that your company has a crucial role to play in remedying the situation. From the headlines about L Brands CEO Leslie Wexner’s close friend and associate, Jeffrey Epstein, to the allegations of sexual misconduct by photographers Timur Emek, David Bellemere, and Greg Kadel, it is deeply disturbing that these men appear to have leveraged their working relationships with Victoria’s Secret to lure and abuse vulnerable girls.

Of late, the lingerie label has been rocked by allegations of sexual misconduct by photographers Timur Emek, David Bellemere, and Greg Kadel. Emek has not yet responded to the claims, while Bellemere and Kadel have denied the allegations.

“It is deeply disturbing that these men appear to have leveraged their working relationships with Victoria’s Secret to lure and abuse vulnerable girls”, the letter continued.

The petition from Model Alliance is also signed by a member of the Hollywood-led initiative Time’s Up, photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and former Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive. Additionally, it asks Victoria’s Secret to sign on to its Respect programme, which was designed by models and aims to support those who need to report complaints about individuals in the industry, as well as provide education and training.

News of the letter comes shortly after Ed Razek, Victoria’s Secret’s chief marketing officer, resigned from his position. He joined the company in 1983.






Loewe’s Latest Bag Supports The Elephant Crisis Fund



Fashion is increasingly aware of the need to support the world socially and environmentally. Recent years have seen fashion brands reconsidering their choice of materials (such as rescinding the use of fur or cashmere) or engaging in charity causes through their collections. However, it is not every day you get to see a fashion brand commit a hundred per cent of its sales to the cause, which is exactly what Spanish luxury fashion house Loewe’s latest collaboration with social media campaign Knot On My Planet is about.

In support of the Elephant Crisis Fund, Loewe has partnered with Knot On My Planet to launch a limited-edition run of its tan Elephant bags with beadwork by Samburu women from northern Kenya.

Loewe’s creative director Jonathan Anderson’s interest in elephant conservation was piqued after seeing the work of KOMP, a campaign powered by fashion influencers including Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes to stop poaching, prevent trafficking and end the demand for ivory. Through KOMP, Jonathan Anderson learnt the negative impact the ivory crisis has on the ecosystems of Africa and Asia, and was introduced to the Samburu community.






Originally an innovative collection made out of leather offcuts, the cult animal-shaped leather creation is now a signature of Loewe brand offerings. Taking the company’s empathy for animals to the next level, Loewe launched a new variation of the elephant shape bag (a crowd favourite among the other animal shapes in the series) into a limited edition collection to benefit The Elephant Crisis Fund in preventing elephant trafficking and poaching, and hopefully in turn, minimise the demand of ivory.

Loewe travelled to Kenya to work with the women from the Samburu workshop to better understand the unique beadwork they produce. The project was born 15 years ago during a drought that saw the men in the community forced to lead the cattle to new pastures to graze and leave the women to fend for themselves and their children. The craft has given the female elders a viable workflow to sustain their families, and the strength as a community towart traffickers harming their home.







The Spanish luxury fashion house understood that money is always steered towards many outlets of our daily lives, but arguably less for philanthropic purposes (as compared to necessary spendings such as bills etc.) And hence, Loewe has helped navigate our style splurges towards a worthy charity.

The new elephant mini bag design is adorned with unique beadwork designs handmade by women artisans from the Samburu Workshop which is part of an initiative by Samburu trust, a Kenya-based organisation that has been working closely with Save the Elephants.

Owing to the nature of the beadwork, each colourful cascade of beads on the Loewe bags is unique. See a selection of exclusive imagery showing the origins of the embellishment from Ol Malo in the heart of Samburu, below, and shop the bags at Loewe.com.


All proceeds from the sale of this limited edition series will go to go to The Elephant Crisis Fund, where the most effective projects in elephant conservation will be funded and executed.


The Elephant Crisis Fund is a joint initiative between Save The Elephants and the Wildlife Conservation Network, in partnership with the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, and aided by KOMP. In support of the fund’s 100 percent donation model, each pound from the £1,100 bags will be deployed to conservation initiatives.


The Loewe Elephant Bag collection is now available on the loewe.com

Colour-Riche-Collection-Exclusive-Reds-products.jpgBlake’s Pure Red is the most iconic red for that Hollywood Glamour, whilst Doutzen’s Pure Red is a blazing tangerine red for a bit of a fiery look.

Shot by renowned photographers, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the Calvin Klein Reveal Men print campaign captures British actor Charlie Hunnam in a provocative embrace with Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes. The television campaign, directed by Jonas Åkerlund, expands upon the story begun in the print campaign to depict a game of voyeuristic seduction played out against the backdrop of the city skyline. Spotting each other from the windows of their facing high-rise apartments, a flirtation from a distance culminates when Doutzen arrives at Charlie’s doorstep and the game becomes real.
