Gate Gate   

Ever since a certain Nixon-era break-in, "gate" has been part of the nickname of virtually every "scandal," no matter how trivial. Join us on a nostalgic journey through

Twenty-five years after Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein changed investigative journalism forever by bringing down a president with their coverage of the Watergate scandal, their legacy remains in the knee-jerk attachment of the "gate" suffix.

These days a girl scout can't scam a box of cookies without triggering a flurry of Cookiegate coverage. Scandals, semi-scandals and pseudo-scandals that hardly register on the Richter scale of corruption – it doesn't matter, they all get the "gate."

This is due in part to the journalist's love of catchy shorthand. One contributor to the gate spate is New York Times columnist William Safire, who has a quick trigger when it comes to gatizing and who officially recognized the "-gate" construction in his New Political Dictionary.

So is the coining of a new "gate" in every day's headlines just harmless journalistic fun? One key Watergate figure says no. Gratuitously attaching the "gate" suffix to the slightest whiff of misconduct, warns Sam Dash, chief counsel to the Senate Watergate Committee back in the day, has the effect of diminishing the seriousness of Watergate – the scandal of all scandals.

"When people hear this proliferation of 'gates,' they feel the press is telling them this is the same as Watergate, and whatever Watergate has stood for has lost its meaning," says Dash, now a consultant to Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth Starr as well as a professor at Georgetown University Law Center.

öhat follows is a selected roster of 25 years of gates, complete with subjective commentary and absolutely arbitrary ratings, aimed at putting the "gate" phenomenon in perspective. But don't bet that it will slam the gate shut once and for all.



If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
