Beyoncé: why he will never work again with Topshop


Beyoncé and Topshop, is over. As a women's rights activist, the singer no longer wants to deal with Philip Green, head of the British brand accused of harassment.

While establishing the Ivy Park brand in partnership with Topshop, Beyoncé has just regained 100% control. The reason; Philip Green, Arcadia's head of the British brand, as well as the Burton, Dorothy Perkins and Miss Selfridge brands, have been accused of being sexually assaulted since October 25th. According to the BBC, Queen B bought the shares of the entrepreneur through Parkwood. "After talks lasting almost a year, Parkwood acquired 100% of the Ivy Park brand. Topshop – Arcadia will honor existing orders," announces the release of the brand released on Thursday, November 14th.

Sexual harassment and racism

Accused of sexual harassment and racism, the case surrounding Philip Green has so far been stifled. But it was without counting Lord Peter Heim, who thought it was "his duty" and "in the public interest" to reveal the identity of that man without mentioning his name the previous day the Daily Telegraph. "The British #MeToo scandal that can not be revealed," the title itself, who claimed that no name could be transmitted. Once his name was revealed in the House of Lords, Philippe Pische categorically denied these accusations.

But the Equality Now association, which promotes gender equality, quickly asked Beyoncé to follow the case closely. "Beyoncé is a female rights activist, and she and her team have to look carefully at these charges," said Yasmeen Hassan, a union spokesman, on October 28th. Finally, it did not take a long time to separate from the man with whom it started its trademark, sold exclusively to Topshop so far.
