Default Blackface Fashion - Was that really the designers intention???????

Truthfully when I looked at the shoes and the sweater which recently came under fire for being "blackface" representations I did NOT look at it that way.

I just see a black sweater, and a black shoe.....nothing else. Black is a very popular color with clothes.

It's like wearing ski masks with face designs on it which were around since forever............

The shoes for example, they even come in different colors but how come the black ones are getting bashed??

Possible racism aside, these are still a crime against humanity.

In 90 days or less, rappers will be wearing Gucci again. Gucci doesn't care, rappers don't really care, nobody really cares.

On the sweater itself, yeah it looks like black face, though I'm sure that wasn't the intention. I can't believe somebody at Gucci wasn't like "Are you sure you wanna do this, guys?" either.

You really see blackface in the clothing??

Man I really gotta be careful wearing anything black these days because I don't see it at all.

And yes I am socially aware of all that's going on with this and DO believe there is a TON of racism in America....

Def don’t see it on the shoes but the lips might be a little too exaggerated on the sweater. Either way it’s all ugly to me

So we can't make anything that even remotely resembles a monkey or we're making fun of black people? WTF looks like a toy monkey wearing a half vader helmet people need to chill

Looks like a monkey to me.

Glad it's not an albino monkey though, 'cause then I'd be really offended!!!
