Aside from the losses of the canceled event itself — not your ordinary runway show, but an event in Shanghai involving some 500 looks — harm to Dolce & Gabbana’s sales is definitely on the cards. As it stands, the brand’s products had been scrubbed from the sites of major Chinese e-commerce players, including Tmall, JD.com and Secoo. Certain global retailers also distanced themselves: Luisa Via Roma pulled the brand’s products, as did the Chinese platforms of Yoox Net-a-porter Group. 
Lane Crawford dropped Dolce & Gabbana products from its 10 stores and e-commerce platform, and in the immediate aftermath, police and guards were stationed at brick-and-mortar Dolce & Gabbana stores across

Fallout Girl: Omnibus Edition

Fallout Girl: Omnibus Edition


Kelly Killjoy is a gunslinging mercenary and skin flick scream queen on an endless quest for adventure, cash, and a good hard fight in the post-apocalyptic wasteland. FALLOUT GIRL (Episode 1)After a gang of cannibal marauders raid the local video store she decides to infiltrate their group in order to steal back the stack of trashy movies. To join up she’s going to have to show her loyalty on the battlefield and in the bedroom. If that wasn’t enough there happens to be a cult of all-male monsters who need a fertile woman to help replenish their numbers. STRAIGHT TO VIDEO (Episode 2)The crazy kids at the Pearl Theatre pay the bills by screening their collection of B-movies and shooting a few rowdy sex flicks of their own.
