Following the recent conflict in Gaza, there is a new fashion trend sweeping through Gaza and the West Bank. Rocket-maaaaania! What started as a weapon fired indiscriminately on a civilian population, the rocket has graduated into the must-have accessory of the Palestinian territories.

The boy in the picture above is the latest to trumpet the trend, this one, a model of the Iranian-designed M-75 long-range rocket. Kid-tested, father-approved. Capable of reaching Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

But the rocket trend isn’t just for men. The ladies love ’em too. Check out a picture from earlier this week featuring a group of women parading fake Qassam rockets at a rally in Nablus. Hold them upright or Radio Raheem-style, they are versatile, even if they lack a basic aiming mechanism.

But what if you don’t want to carry around a rocket all day? Don’t despair, consumers! There is also the musk of rocket. According to Foreign Policy, the M-75 fragrance–available in both his and hers scent–is literally taking off!

According to the owner of the company, Shadi Adwan, “The fragrance is pleasant and attractive, like the missiles of the Palestinian resistance, and especially the M-75.” Its goal? “To remind citizens of the victory wherever they may be, even in China.”

Next stop: John Galliano.
