I really don’t know who thought this was a good idea, or who or why thought these were even cute or couture. But Gucci thought it was fashionable to design a turtle neck sweater that made the person wearing it look they were wearing black face. The fashionabley incorrect sweater on some many levels had the nerve to be priced at $890.00 that’s before taxes. WOW…SMH!!??
So after and only after the Italian high-end designer got dragged by social media, Gucci issued an apology.
Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper.
We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make.
