Hey guys! How are you doing?
Sorry for the late post but I had some technical difficulties at my grandparent’s house. Shall we start? Today we are talking Dolce & Gabbana.
I still remember their scandal in 2015 about gay adoption and In vitro fertilization and since that time, they always get into some trouble. I don’t know if they are doing this on purpose or they must be super bored. I mean probably you can reach a certain level of boredom when you already have everything in your life. Okay, so first the argument with Miley Cyrus, which was, to be honest very adolescent. We know that Miley likes to stand up for different things, whether through the Happy Hippie Foundation or social media. She posted a picture of her brother walking for D&G at their new show. The post was mostly positive however she did mention that she is not agreeing with the brand’s politics, that’s it. Stefano’s response was – “For your stupid comment never more work with him” – Seriously!? You can do better than that and actually they did. They released the new #boycottdolceandgabbana t-shirt for around £200, bear that in mind that it is a white t-shirt with black letters printed on it. At that point I was like – Okay this is a joke
And finally, the real boycott happened when we found out that one of their models actually did boycott the fashion show. I was confused why was this happening but then everything started to make sense. It was because they dressed the FLOTUS and a lot of people had problems with that. I won’t get political here, but I think everyone needs to chill out a bit, D&G, and the boycotters as well. Go and have a walk, breathe some fresh air and let’s hope it will help.
What are your thoughts on these happenings within the fashion world?
See you on Wednesday,
The Fashion Eclectic.
P.S. I am catching up with all the new menswear shows and there’s a post coming about it on Saturday.
