    i think you should be able to put whatever picture you want anywhere you want...if people don't like it they can show their displeasure by refusing to purchase the item...i am quite sure that if the item doesn't sell...you won't see the image displayed that way again...

    i am quite sure cavalli meant no harm...even if i think it's a dumb idea...

    I think that designers are too willing to pillage other cultures for ideas and often do not respect, or even know much about, the culture whose symbols they are making use of. Perhaps with a little cultural sensitivity training, these types of situations could be avoided in the future. :ninja: :innocent:

    you know...it's fine for some people to have their beliefs...but if i don't share those beliefs...then why can't i wear an image of jesus or krishna or mickey mouse on my panties...?...how is that hurting anyone>??... to me there is no difference...

    it seems like there are a LOT of much more pressing issues that people should concern themselves with...imo...

    I remember when I was wearing this D&G top with a saint or someting printed on it, I got a very bad look from someone at a club that obviously wasn't American... I wasn't also in the best mood of understanding what the hell he told me, but I knew it wasn't preety...

    I dunno what to say about this though... it' just a print on fabric...

    Secretary Bimal Krishna Das is full of ****. Cavalli's sexy undies completely embody established depictionism. I mean, look:

    Furthermore, even Indian designers themselves use the symbols:

    In any event, I support what softgrey said!

    i don't mean to offend but i think that hindus have a lot more to worry about than cavalli panties...india has one of the worst reputations as far as womens rights (it is the hindu tradition that has lead to countless child rapes among other injustices to women)...yes, these panties are pretty much pointless, but this is just too much when there are HUGE issues that do need political attention even within the hinduism.

    I don't find that at all offensive. I remember when Dolce and Gabbana had the Madonna and the blessed child printed on dresses, it probably got a similar response from Catholics, but it's not like they, or Cavalli for that matter, did it in an intentionally offensive way, if you know what I mean. I guess it's just because I'm a bit more open minded about religion then others, but I can see why it may offend others to have religious symbols on clothes, it just doesn't happen to offend me.
