valentino s/s 2016 show inspired by ‘wild Africa’ sparks controversy



The maison faces accusations of cultural appropriation following a show featuring bongo drums and a cast of mostly white models wearing cornrows. Some were not too happy about the language used to describe the African inspiration ("wild" and "primitive"), as well as the lack of black models.

















And a couple of pictures from the after party.
