Bretibart News Network Launches Clothing Line [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Breitbart News Network, the heavily conservative site founded by Andrew Breitbart in 2007, has launched its own merchandise. The collection, sold exclusively on the website's online shop, boasts "only the finest, American made gear … with an attitude," priced between $5 and $57. Said editor-in-chief Alex Marlow, “We're very excited to open the Breitbart store as it gives our readers yet one more way to irritate leftists and globalists by donning our gear. We've spent a lot time developing the store and feel that the merch reflects the same attitude with which we cover the news: bold, ironic and with some humor thrown in.”

Gucci Launches Gucci 4 Rooms Project [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
For part of a new art series called the Gucci 4 Room project, the Italian brand has invited four artists to each transform a room with complete creative freedom. First up, creative director Alessandro Michele selected three Japanese artists (Chiharu Shiota, Daito Manabe and Mr.) to create/decorate the rooms, which will be digitally interactive, in the spirit of the fashion house. For the fourth space, Michele tapped Trouble Andrew, with whom Michele has already collaborated with on the Gucci Ghost collection. However, users will only be able to gain access to Trouble Andrew's room by finding hidden keys in the first three rooms. The spaces, which also feature pieces from the fall 2016 collection, will debut online first as virtual spaces on Tuesday and IRL at the Tokyo Gucci store on Wednesday.
