Nordstrom Pulls Moschino’s Drug-Related Collection

Just say no.
Not a stranger to a lil bit of controversy, old mate Jeremy Scott is in a pickle once again now that big-time retailers Nordstrom have decided to pull his drug-related Moschino capsule collection.
 
The collection features prescription bottle handbags, pill-covered clutched, pill packet iPhone cases and items dosage warning prints, and some people just aren't that chill with it. 
 
Randy Anderson, a men's program counsellor at Eden House Recovery Services in Minneapolis, saw the collection as glamourising drug addiction. He started a petition on change.org asking Saks Fifth Avenue chief executive officer Marc Metrick and Marcello Tassinari of Moschino to stop selling the collection. By Friday evening he had 1,589 signatures.
 
"It would appear that you are unaware that our country is in the midst of a severe epidemic of opioid addiction and overdose deaths – acknowledged by the federal government as the worst drug epidemic in U.S. history," Randy said in his letter. "According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2014, 47,055 people died of an accidental drug overdose, with 29,467 of those from opioid-related drugs, which includes prescription pain medication and heroin. Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in this country."
 
While Saks are yet to respond, Nordstrom decided to pull the items even though they weren't directly targeted by Randy. "We appreciate all the constructive feedback we received from concerned customers and ultimately decided to remove the collection from our site and the three stores where we offered it," a spokeswoman said, according to WWD.
