‘El suicidio no es moda’, Burberry retira polémica sudadera

Una sudadera que porta un cordón en forma de soga ha sido fuertemente criticada en la semana de la moda en Londres. Pareciera que Burberry quiso decir algo.

Riccardo Tisci es uno de los diseñadores más importantes en la industria de la moda. Tratando de rescatar Burberry y proponer diseños arriesgados la firma británica ha cometido una falla.

burberry noose hoodie 2 - ‘El suicidio no es moda’, Burberry retira polémica sudadera

La línea estaba enfocada a adolescentes. En los últimos ocho años el reino unido ha sido foco rojo en cuestión de suicidios adolescentes que han ido incrementando anualmente.

Los comentarios señalaron rápidamente que la marca incita al suicidio y que debería ser retirada de inmediato.

Liz Kennedy denunció la falta de sensibilidad de la marca a través de su cuenta personal en Instagram.

La carta explica su sentir dirigida al diseñador Ricardo Tisci y directivos de la casa de moda británica.

Kennedy, levantó la voz para que la prenda fuera retirada antes de ser presentada. Nadie la escuchó y la única opción que tenía era: escribir una carta.

@burberry @riccardotisci17 Suicide is not fashion. It is not glamorous nor edgy and since this show is dedicated to the youth expressing their voice, here I go. Riccardo Tisci and everyone at Burberry it is beyond me how you could let a look resembling a noose hanging from a neck out on the runway. How could anyone overlook this and think it would be okay to do this especially in a line dedicated to young girls and youth. The impressionable youth. Not to mention the rising suicide rates world wide. Let’s not forget about the horrifying history of lynching either. There are hundreds of ways to tie a rope and they chose to tie it like a noose completely ignoring the fact that it was hanging around a neck. A massive brand like Burberry who is typically considered commercial and classy should not have overlooked such an obvious resemblance. I left my fitting extremely triggered after seeing this look (even though I did not wear it myself). Feeling as though I was right back where I was when I was going through an experience with suicide in my family. Also to add in they briefly hung one from the ceiling (trying to figure out the knot) and were laughing about it in the dressing room. I had asked to speak to someone about it but the only thing I was told to do was to write a letter. I had a brief conversation with someone but all that it entailed was “it’s fashion. Nobody cares about what’s going on in your personal life so just keep it to yourself” well I’m sorry but this is an issue bigger than myself. A look so ignorantly put together and a situation so poorly handled. I am ashamed to have been apart of the show. #burberry.

La intención del diseñador era representar un nudo marino no se entendió así. Lamentó lo sucedido pidiendo disculpas a todos recalcando que no volvería a ocurrir algo así.

Burberry no es la única que se ha visto envuelta en la polémica este año, Gucci recién retiró de sus tiendas una prenda que pareciera blackface.
