Gucci issued an apology for the offense caused by their “blackface sweater”. I don’t accept. In fact, at this point, I’m convinced that these “mistakes” are part of these folks’ marketing strategy. They can’t be that clueless.

That being said, here is a list of Black owned luxury brands that you can use to replace brands like Gucci and Prada that refuse to act right.
