CNN Pans H&M's Fashion Against AIDS

Wow, the folks over at CNN are really down on H&M's Fashion Against AIDS collection. In fact, they hate it so much, they wrote a story totally panning it: "'I don't love it, but I do I think the cause is great and any kind of awareness to AIDS is important,' said fashion stylist Holly Copeland. Unisex clothes are also inherently unflattering, Alexandra Greenawalt, another New York-based fashion stylist, added. 'The whole collection has a shapeless feel to it which is embraced in retail but as a stylist I stay away from it.'" Really? It's T-shirts and basics for a good cause, people. C'mon. [CNN]
