Today in unfortunate acts of lameness, Nordstrom has decided to pull Moschino's recently launched drug-themed capsule collection from its stores. The line was criticized by some for "making light of drug addiction" and even sparked protests in some areas, Fortune reported. The collection, Moschino's Spring/Summer 2017 batch, is visually inspired by the design of traditional prescription bottles and includes medication instructions emblazoned across the pieces and even flips Nancy Reagan's oft-mocked "Just Say No" slogan to read "Just Say Moschi-NO" instead.
"We appreciate all the constructive feedback we received from concerned customers and ultimately decided to remove the collection from our site and the three stores where we offered it," a Nordstrom spokesperson told Fortune. Previously, the retail giant had seemed adamant on pushing through the protests and keeping the collection in stock.
The collection includes drug-themed t-shirts, knitwear, overalls, dresses, and even iPhone covers in the shape of classic prescription bottles. "Moschino presents a new capsule collection inspired by the packaging and instructional inserts of over-the-counter medication, 'prescribing' its fans a colorful selection of garments and accessories that reflect Jeremy Scott's fun, provocative language," a press release explained upon launch.
For those not deterred by Nordstrom's decision and still interested in copping the controversial collection, Moschino is still offering the pieces for purchase at its online store. That aforementioned iPhone case is going for a cool $75 and would make a great gift for, I don't know, me?
