Recycled Tomato Bottles

plastic tomato sauce bottle

The once-ubiquitous plastic tomato sauce bottle, that held down plastic table cloths at Wimpy diners in the 1970’s (?). A couple of years ago Pinkie bought one at the Grace Barrand Design Centre and this weekend they appear to have trickled (back) down to the high street outlet of fashion for the masses, Topshop.  The circle turns.

This brought to mind the following scene of the latest Meryl Streep film The Devil Wears Prada about the fashion industry:

and how, when I was watching this scene the first time (in the cinema) I thought about how much stuff the high priests and priestesses of fashion actually borrow for their creations from elsewhere. How much stuff (like denim jeans for example) start out as working class clothes and end up on the high-cutting-table of the fashion industry? OK, maybe not too much but I suspect that a lot of the stuff that starts out being cobbled together by a 3rd year arts student at some city university, for her own wardrobe, ends up in their glossies.
