Reebok responds to a(nother) sexist comment made by Trump

Reebok is the latest brand to publicly take a stance against the US president. Trump visited Paris last week for a meeting with his French homologue. In his attempt to compliment the French president’s wife, Brigitte Macron, Trump told the first lady that she was “in such good shape… Beautiful”. The president has yet again been labelled as sexist for his remarks with many calling him out. One such brand being Reebok who uploaded an ironic but funny response to Trump’s words on Twitter which ponders the question when is it appropriate to say, “You’re in such good shape… Beautiful”. Hint: never. You can see the response in the slideshow below.

Nike proves that millennials are passionate about pink with new monochrome collection

The power of pink shows no sign of slowing down as Nike has invested in an entirely pink collection this season. From sports bras and T-shirts to trainers and even more trainers, you’ll find everything you need to suit Wednesday’s dress code. But the company hasn’t gone for the typical millennial pink, instead, Nike created its own chrome version as they wanted to juxtapose the traditionally feminine colour with a metallic swoosh. The collection is called ‘Chrome Blush‘ and is inspired by the current rise of science-fiction superheroines and the concept of “women versus machine”.
