Givenchy’s “noose” necklace is criticized after being compared to Burberry’s “suicide hoodie” in 2019
Fashion can be dangerously bizarre, and a lot of luxury fashion houses were called in the past to perpetuate problematic ideas through their clothing and accessories, all in the name of “creative expression”.
Fashion Prada Diet Watchdog in her recent Instagram post, shared photos of two brands, mainly their bizarre accessories and clothing that appear to be real noose.
The first photo is of the infamous Burberry noose, which was dubbed a ‘suicide hoodie’ in 2019. Noose hoodie debacle in 2019 … ”reads the Diet Prada caption accompanying the images.
A BBC The report states that in 2019, Burberry had to apologize after being criticized by one of her own models, Liz Kennedy, in a lengthy Instagram post, in which she said “suicide is not fashionable”.
