Melbourne – A new e-commerce site called This Is Not A Mall curates its products in a way that chimes with the visual culture explored in our Netstalgia macrotrend.
The presentation on the site is playful. Pictures of celebrities modelling clothes are Photoshop-ped on in an amateurish, ill-fitting way. Rapper Eminem models earrings on the site, and Snoop Dogg relaxes while modelling a tie-dye T-shirt.
This Is Not A Mall is a social enterprise designed to improve the lives of people in south and southeast Asia. The site donates 15% of its profits to help Thai food relief, and impoverished Thai hill tribe communities.
