    I have to honestly say I'm surprised that house is still cranking it out. Maybe it's still huge in Europe (not sure it ever caught on as much here as over there anyway, even during its 80s heyday).

    I loved Benetton when I was in high school, and that was many moons ago…I've no idea if the brand is still “big” with young people. I don't see as many of the stores as I used to though.
