I just read about American Apparel's new line of garments and accessories made of their usual stretchy cotton fabric. They're calling the pattern "Afrika" -- I guess that the 'k' gives it a Dutch colonial flair. Stereohyped noted that AA decided not to use any black models to promote the line but personally, I'm glad that no black models were used. I think they're a sleazy company and their garments are overpriced. If they used black models here it would obviously be to add some kind of legitmacy to the line which would be insulting. Also, the leggings they're selling on the website look like ass.
