As beautiful of a story as this is, it may not end up with a delighted ending. Just recently, Gucci excused (and pulled from racks) an $890 sweatshirt that looked like blackface After a number of days of impassioned discussion amongst fans on social networks, the brand name launched a declaration, stating: “Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper … We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected and at the forefront of every decision we make.
