The New Gucci Campaign Is Everything Fashion Dreams Are Made Of

Leave it up to Alessandro Michele to push the boundaries (once again) as Gucci unveils its spectacular new advertising campaign for Spring 2018. Making a disappearing act is photographer Glen Luchford who has captured Michele’s flamboyant aesthetic since day one, as the work of surreal Spanish artist and illustrator Ignasi Monreal takes center stage this season. Monreal produced Gucci’s ‘Gift Giving’ campaign and now cements his relationship with the legendary Italian fashion house with yet another campaign. Titled Utopian Fantasy, the images are based on some of the most iconic fairytales and feature multiple hidden references.

Members of our forums were in awe. “I’m going to miss Luchford but I have to say that I love the concept of illustrating the campaign,” wrote kokobombon instantly.

“I won’t lie, this is gorgeous,” admitted dodencebt.

“Never thought I’d say this but I’m absolutely loving this. They keep nailing these campaigns,” noted Vitmaine W.

In agreement over how terrific the campaign turned out was anlabe32: “OMG I LOVE IT! Feels like I’m looking at Hieronymus Bosch art, awesome.”

Benn98 couldn’t sing Michele’s praises loud enough, writing, “He did it again, a campaign accompaniment to an equally ornate collection. Alessandro Michele is a genius and single-handedly rejuvenated my interest in Italian fashion. I don’t want to get too cozy without Luchford, but this is spectacular!”

“I love this. Perfect for the new Gucci. They keep on delivering with the creativity of the campaigns,” echoed apple.

“Wow. Love it. I was disappointed when I didn’t see Luchford involved with this campaign, but wow! wow! wow! I’m pleasantly surprised by how beautiful and well executed this campaign turned out! Gucci does it again,” heralded fashionlover2001.

School Officials Failed To Notify Parents Of A Bed Bug Infestation

School Officials Failed To Notify Parents Of A Bed Bug Infestation

We all know that bed bugs are infesting locations all over the world, and their population numbers are only growing by the second. Facing this fact may be unpleasant for most people, but some authorities are ignoring their responsibility to prevent or treat bed bug infestations when they occur. Many government employees, hotel managers, landlords, property management companies and now school administration officials seem to be ignoring serious infestations as though they do not exist. Failing to address bed bug infestations is sadly not uncommon among people who are responsible for protecting others from the negative consequences associated with bed bugs. Not only can bed bugs bite, but they can easily infest people’s homes if a reproductive pair hitch a ride on a person’s clothing.

There are more and more reports appearing in the news about bed bug victims winning enormous amounts of money after suing landlords or hotel managers for failure to warn. It seems that the legal system sympathizes with victims of bed bug infestations. It is not hard to believe that landlords and hotel managers ignore infestations since eradicating bed bugs is a hassle. But you would expect elementary school officials to live up to a higher standard in order to protect children. However, there has already been multiple cases of bed bug infestations occuring in colleges and schools around the country.

One recent in-school infestation within a Queen’s school in New York City was not even reported to the parents of students for an entire week after the bed bugs were discovered. In addition to that, the school has not canceled any classes. This may not be a big deal if only one or two bed bugs were found, but the school’s superior administrative officials are refusing to provide details relating to the seriousness of the infestation. Also, the infestation is serious enough to require a fumigation during the winter break. Students learned from certain members of the administrative staff that bed bugs had been found within the school. The bed bugs were found an entire week before the school board had students take warning letters home to their parents. Understandably, many parents are upset about not being warned sooner, and some are fearful of their children bringing bed bugs home from school, as classes were not cancelled.

Do you think that parents should be notified if the school that their kid/s attend is found to contain one single bed bug?

Happy Holidays!

With the holiday weekend now upon us, I wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  The next week or so will be a quiet one for the most part, so I’m going to take the opportunity to shut things down around here until after the start of the new year. I’ll be spending time with friends and family, relaxing, writing, and working on some…
