I take far more offense to the fact that the clothes are revoltingly hideous.
Those headdresses are sacred to many tribes and hold deep spiritual/religious meanings. They're not just meant to be pretty.

I wonder whether Vogue US would us that outfit on an editorial.

But now, coming to think of it .. didnt Gaultier kinda did it as well a while ago?

We will see. And this collection is utter rubbish.

The thing about the head dress that upsets me is how it lightheartedly mocks people who were slaughtered en masse throughout the colonial times. The head dress is not like a bindi or a beaded necklace, they signify rank and bring back painful memories of patriotism. "I killed the savage and now I'm wearing their funny hat" is the message this has. I am incredibly disappointed and will no longer support Chanel.

Anyway, this looks terribly predictable and ugly.
I highly doubt that's how Karl Lagerfeld approaches his work, especially the google part.

Is it so wrong to be inspired by another culture ?
One can also say it's a cultural appropriation when models wear cowboy-inspired outfits. Is anyone going to say it's racist ? I doubt it.

Those poor cowboys, victims of anti-cowboy genocide and of course the "trail of cowboy tears".

I'm not denying any of the history of the Indian people and what happened is completely wrong but a collection inspired by a culture is not always racist, at least to me. I see it as a hommage. And frankly, those headpieces won't be worn by anyone besides models in photoshoots. It's not like we're going to see everyday people parading in headpieces like those.

I'm done here. I'm not discussing my point of view any further.

tbh i was hoping for something a bit more Daisy Duke and Farm H*e, so this just isn't doing it for me.
