Italian Vogue Goes Rogue With “Slave Earrings” Feature

slave earrings

The Vogue brand is no stranger to offensive missteps. In the past we’ve seen FrenchVogue do blackface, American Vogue portray LeBron James as King Kong, and Indian Vogue put a Fendi bib on an impoverished child. However, Vogue Italia always seemed a bit more enlightened than its sister publications. Just three years ago, the magazine put out its first “all black” issue, which (while not without its questionable moments) did more than any other edition to push for more diversity in fashion.

The magazine is only referencing one of the most disgusting events in human history in a story about earrings to show how far we’ve come! Now “Slave earrings” are all about “purefreedom.” (Bonus racist allusion!) Vogue Italia just wants to celebrate “evolution” — by running a feature that sets us back decades

Check the feature out here: Vogue Italia
