[MFW] SMH Dolce & Gabbana!

During Milan Fashion Week the fashion duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showcased their Spring 2013 Collection.  In fashion 101 one of the first lessons you learn is the golden rule that your accessories are either the compliment or the focal point of any ensemble.  Being that this was their presentation of their Spring 2013 collection you would assume that the focal point would be the apparel.  Not in this case.  The glaring reality was that the very questionable accessories, specifically earrings were the central focus of this collection.

The collection referenced an obvious inspiration to Blackamoor statues, a common icon in Italian art of the colonial era--but one that is definitely considered by many (myself included) as an offensive and extremely racist relic of the past.

It's just astonishing to me that in this present day and time that individuals are so numb to the idea of what is truly art and what is blatant trash.
