Daniel Lee’s ears must be whistling right now. Indeed, on April 9, Bottega Veneta threw a gigantic after-party at the German nightclub Soho House Berlin. If you struggle understanding the previous sentence, it’s normal. You’re aware that us being in a deadly pandemic is kind of alarming. In regards of all these curfews, restrictions and other prohibitions, a nightclub party can be surprising. But there’s nothing new about fashion disregard for legal rules. In fact, it’s pretty common.

From an insider perspective, we can tell there are a lot of exceptions once fame and money are involved, COVID-19 or not. What can restrain us, mortals, from acting like supreme beings really is nothing for our beloved celebrities. Kendall Jenner can testify, a 100-something dollars fine is absolutely meaningless for a millionaire.

But there’s another layer to that when it comes to high-fashion. After years of incredible efforts to create elitism and cultivate secrecy, there’s a common belief that what happens within the industry will never reach the masses. Worse, it’s been proven that you’re rarely effectively held accountable for what you do to those plebeians. You probably remember the Alexander Wang or Living Cool affairs that occurred a few months ago. They both, of course, met a dead-end.

We’re undeniably living incredible times. Slowly, we’re realizing that our society is way more organic than we were once taught. It’s about time we remind some of us that they’re, still, part of a greater ensemble.

To be continued.
