Fashion News Roundup: NYT's Hearts Rodarte But Not Neighborhoodies, More From American Apparel, And The Dark Side Of Organic

New York Times Versus Neighborhoodies Versus Rodarte: When Rodarte released its New York Herald Tribune tee as a tribute to the cult-classic film Breathless, apparently they forgot the cliché that there are no new ideas. T-shirt underdogs Neighborhoodies had already been producing a near-exact doppleganger of the shirt for years-- minus the ghosted-out "Rodarte" text, of course. Neighborhoodies is now in a legal kerfuffle with The New York Times, but the Times may not have much of a case. We expect the newspaper giant to emerge from the conflict with no winnings and some bad press--as they say, no news is good news. {Racked} The Un-Cuddly Facts About Organic Cotton: Hipster mommies and daddies everywhere wouldn't dream about putting their little Emmett/Regina/Asbury in anything other than 100% pure organic cotton, but they may not realize that the kid's going to have a hell of a complex when he grows up. According to Time magazine, the insecticide restrictions necessitated by the "organic" label are putting babies in Africa at an even higher risk for Malaria, a disease that's already wreaking havoc on Uganda. Let's hope the newly-pregnant Stella McCartney avoids this trap....{Ecouterre}

More Drama From American Apparel: Since word got out about American Apparel's intensely regimented hiring practices, it seems to be all anyone can talk about. However, the latest installment of the drama is that American Apparel now requires all its employees to sign a one-million dollar confidentiality agreement...presumably so this sort of thing doesn't happen again. {Gawker}
