Blind Item #1

It's not really shocking that the head of this conglomerate produced something racist. One of his favorite fetishes when he cheats on the wife you all know is to play slave master games.

LVMH?? Hayek husband

Burberry? Who's heading burberry? Marco something.
Burberry because they had a noose around one of their models while walking on a runway in a hoodie

Village Guru said...

I saw a pic of the model with the noose. Most unattractive clothing ever.

J said...

Weird fixation on blackface.

I don't get why they think people want to buy that garbage.

MDAnderson said...

I don’t think LVMH own Burberry but owns Givenchy which Riccardo Tisci used to work for.

Do people outside the US really have much, if any, knowledge of lynching and nooses and the like? Or is it a case of Americans thinking that the rest of the world should know, and be outraged, over domestic occurrings from a time when most weren’t even alive?

prixie said...

Even more sadder than the noose is the clothes Burberry had on the runway! What happened to Burberry that they had an ugly Yeezy type hoodie on the fucking runway!

@MDAnderson Givenchy was getting some backlash on social media yesterday for their new foundation line being mostly for light skinned people. Not sure if that's technically producing something racist.

MDAnderson said...

@prixie. I have always loved Burberry from afar and Tisci is destroying the brand. They need to bring Chris Bailey back.

MDAnderson said...

Thanks alli for this. I’m guessing the “influencers” are mad over the foundation not being inclusive. That fits more than the Burberry noose hoodie.

SarahElizabeth said...

Europeans in general are not as politically correct or concerned with being "inclusive" as Americans. Their mentality is that if the clothing doesn't fit, or the brand doesn't work for you, find a brand that does. They're not concerned with whether or not they please everyone or hurt their feelings. All of these brands being mentioned in the comments are European brands. If Americans are that butt hurt over it, they don't have to support those brands. But they shouldn't project their expectations of American brands onto European ones, because the culture and mentality is different.

MountainMama said...

I would like to know why the recent fascination in the big fashion houses with blackface and nooses? There is some kind of agenda going on and this stuff about Europeans not caring so much about stuff like Americans do is something I don't totally buy into regarding this blackface stuff and this noose stuff. There is something afoul.

Who was the brain behind the decision to send a model down the runway with a noose?? I think the "blackface" was a bit ambiguous.. but a noose? Let's just say it's not racist- ...what is it then?
At the very least it's flagrantly distasteful

Hiram Abiff said...

Dolce & Gabanna have been the most serious offenders of Blackface and racist stereotypes (in addition to simulating gangrape scens in shoots). Burberry is now run by the unimaginably dull Ricardo Tissue, and he has to try and get some publicity for his ugly clothes. Of course, he's a "close friend" of Kanye. Jussie Smollett just gave Ricardo an idea, that's all.

The Gucci blackface Turtleneck Sweater / Gucci is owned by Kering CEO Francois Henri Pinault

The stupidity of non-Americans who judge Americans based on minimal information gleaned from afar is hilarious.

AlleyKat said...

In the UK if you put a PC word or Twitter out of place you are hounded as a racist hate criminal. However I can't speak for the French, italIans etc.

AlleyKat said...

UK - my age group (ancient) were taught world history which covered US civil rights movement, segregation, lynchings, world wars, holocaust, diaspora etc.

Fuck knows what they teach them today...they come put of university unable to string a sentence together.

Henri Pinault/Selma Hayek/ Gucci blackface sweater

Count Jerkula said...

If the whore is willing to do the role play, who are we to judge?

Bonby Haud said...

No that's the same shit they teach today. Except they teach a ton more about lynching, segregation and racism more than they teach about other things.

Bonby Haud said...

No way, gotta be BBCs new tv show Living With the Lambs. It's a new racist tv show about Chinese people supposedly.

Henri Penault is a little short guy, the same height as his wife when she's wearing heels.
