Hugo Boss | Fall Winter 2012/2013 Full Fashion Show

And let’s all remember that Hugo Boss was a supporter of the Nazis. Not just a supporter but he also designed the uniforms of the SS and other groups. So will I celebrate this show? Nope. Someone needs to throw blood over the entire Hugo Boss line.

Don’t believe me? Here is the Wikipedia entry.:

Hugo Boss started his clothing company in 1924 in Metzingen, a small town south of Stuttgart, where it is still based. However, due to the economic climate in Germany at the time Boss was forced into bankruptcy. In 1931 he reached an agreement with his creditors, leaving him with 6 sewing machines to start again. The same year, he became a member of the Nazi party and a sponsoring member (“Förderndes Mitglied”) of the Schutzstaffel.[11]He later stated himself that he had joined the party because of their promise to end unemployment and because he felt “temporarily” withdrawn from the Lutheran church.[11] He joined the German Labour Front in 1936, theReich Air Protection Association in 1939, the National Socialist People’s Welfare in 1941.[11] His sales increased from 38,260 RM in 1932 to over 3,300,000 RM in 1941, while his profits increased in the same period from 5,000 RM to 241,000 RM.[11] Though he claimed in a 1934/1935 advertising he had been a “supplier for Nazi uniforms since 1924”, such supplies are probable since 1928/1929 and certain since 1934, when he became anReichszeugmeisterei-licensed (official) supplier of uniforms to the SturmabteilungSchutzstaffelHitler Youth,National Socialist Motor Corps and other party organizations.[11] To meet demand in later years of the war, Boss used about 30 to 40 prisoners of war and about 150 forced laborers, from the Baltic States, Belgium, France, Italy, Austria, Poland, Czechoslovakia and the former Soviet Union.[11] According to German historian Henning Kober, the company managers were “avowed nazis”, “the Boss were all great admirers of Adolf Hitler” and Hugo Boss had in 1945 in his apartment a photograph of himself with Hitler taken in the latter’sObersalzberg retreat.[12]

Read the rest.  This fashion house needs to be taken down. 

It might be Valentino owned but I say boycott both Hugo Boss and Valentino. It is a hideous heritage and nobody has apologized or offered anything.
