Which outdoor brand is in hot water with Wikipedia for altering images on the website in order to gain free advertising?

Correct! Wrong!

The advertising agency Leo Burnett Tailor Made came up with a way to get its client, The North Face, at the top of Google image searches without paying a cent: by editing Wikipedia.

Wikipedia has since removed all of the images, and The North Face has apologized.

What is the name of Marc Jacobs' new brand?

Correct! Wrong!

This week Marc Jacobs launched a new line, The Marc Jacobs. And yes, it is named after his personal Instagram handle. The new brand features re-issues of several archival pieces from his long career, and includes collaborations with Peanuts and New York Magazine. “We wanted to do something that is unlike the runway collections we are doing, in that it is more ‘item-y,'” he said. “The items are things that you could put together to create your look.”

Gucci presented its Resort 2020 collection, which included an organ embroidered on to a dress. What organ was it?

Gucci presented its latest collection at Rome’s Capitoline Museums. On the offset it seemed like business as usual for the brand — the maximalist ensembles featured a blend of vintage-inspired details. But Alessandro Michele also found space for a series of political messages throughout his clothes. A dress featured an embroidered uterus and ovaries on it; a jacket had the words “My Body, My Choice” on its back; and another piece featured the date “22.05.1978,” which according to Vogue Runway is the day a law protecting legal abortion went into effect in Italy.
