(The Guardian, By Lily Kuo)
The Hong Kong protests have seemingly inspired a wave of nationalism among Chinese citizens, leading to massive backlash against large fashion labels in response to company websites and T-shirts listing Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, are sovereign countries. Among the brands that apologized are Coach, Givenchy, Asics, Calvin Klein, and Versace. This comes after public Chinese figures have terminated their relationships with the brands as a symbol of protecting Chinese sovereignty. <Accessed 2019-08-14>
