Here are a few links I stumbled across this week that might interest you:
- Everlane CEO gave a talk at Harvard about their approach with transparency back in 2014. It’s interesting to see how the idea developed and was executed, especially at a time when it was still pretty much a gamble as to whether they would succeed.
- American Apparel is closing down and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Why they went broke? According to Racked, the problem was that they didn’t evolve as hipsters evolved: “… American Apparel did a good job of commodifying the earliest kind of hipster—the Vice-reading, PBR-swilling, trucker-hat-wearing twenty something…. But they have not successfully evolved to meet the needs of the new wave that cares about authenticity and buys products from brands that have a strong ethical core.” — Totally agree!
