Gucci through the dust after 'blackface-sweater'

World February 7, 2019 06:16

florence - The Italian fashion brand Gucci has gone through the dust for the design of a ladies' jersey, which critics say is much like the racist blackface caricature.

In the neck of the wool sweater, which runs halfway up the face, there is a mouth opening with a red edge, which gives the illusion of red painted lips. The sweater should have paid tribute to classic ski ski caps, but many customers overloaded the fashion designer with a wave of criticism. Gucci has apologized and removed the sweater from the market.
