Givenchy criticised for noose necklace at Paris Fashion Week https://t.co/xfSwORb5k4— BBC News (World) (@BBCWorld) October 5, 2021
French fashion house Givenchy has been criticised after models wore necklaces shaped like nooses on the catwalk at its Paris Fashion Week show. It comes two years after Burberry said sorry for a hoodie featuring a noose.
The necklace was part of Givenchy creative director Matthew Williams' first in-person catwalk show since he joined the luxury brand last summer. It was created with US artist Josh Smith, inspired by his Grim Reaper paintings.
Givenchy has not commented on the backlash to the necklace.
