Moschino’s Capsule Collection, A Controversial Prescription Drug-Themed Clothing Line

The luxury department store Nordstrom has agreed to stop selling a line of clothing and accessories that features Moschino drug capsules and prescription drug labels amid complaints that the line seems to be promoting drug use.

Moschino’s Capsule Collection

The line, which includes a dress with a print of a prescription drug label and a shoulder bag shaped like a prescription drug bottle, is from Moschino, a luxury Italian brand. Both items, part of Moschino’s Capsule Collection, go for $950 apiece.

The drug-themed collection also includes a black backpack with colorful capsules on it, and a cell phone case that looks like a medication blister pack you would get at a pharmacy.

The line even spurred a Minneapolis-based drug and alcohol counselor, Randy Anderson, to start an online petition asking that the Moschino Capsule Collection items be removed from stores. By the time Nordstrom agreed to on Thursday, the petition had garnered 1,500 signatures.

The petition noted that the Moschino’s Capsule Collection accessories will “most likely promote more drug use” and that the country is in the midst of an epidemic of overdose deaths and opioid addiction.
