Somehow I missed it, but apparently Dolce&Gabbana presented their Spring/Summer 2013 Collect last month during Milan Fashion Week. And it was blasted with criticism because of the Blackamoor imagery and earrings that were resembling mammy-like figures.
Among many people who were upset with the collection, was Azealia Banks who tweeted yesterday [although, she is a month late just like us]:
“Definitely boycotting Dolce&Gabbana. Whoever designed that racist a$$ Dolce and Gabbana collection needs a swift kick in the mouth and a big d–k up the a$$.I really hate when people do corny, racist things then try to justify it as “art.” It’s all just really unnecessary. The clothes in the collection were fine without all the “black mammie” imagery.”
