MichaelKorsAdCampaign 540x346 Michael Kors Ad Campaign Spring 2012

Black man as a prop in a foreign land where his race is the majority, iteration No. 1,524,326. I mean, ad people, c’mon–this is fashion, if not because you’re against maintaining the status quo, at least have some shame as it applies to a complete and total lack of vision or creativity.

  1. Her in lies the problem with the Donna Karan ad where she believes she is doing some justice for the culture by exploiting Haiti’s beauty and using Haitian as props…. There has to be some authenticity a natural element.. I guessing this is the beginning of mockery ads…

  2. I couldn’t agree more on this and also on JeanHMar’s comment..spot on!

  3. I luv the idea of mockery ads, a visual like that has the power to open eyes more than accusations of racism (however true they be), which often put recipients on the defense.

  4. agreed! Like when companies had black models in their campaigns for black history month but switched right back after… black people are forever props in the fashion world and that sucks

  5. I don’t think this ad was racist at all. I thought it looked more like a 5 year directed this shoot. The art direction in this ad just sucked ass.

  6. well, what is your definition of racism? for me, it’s about maintaining systems of power. granted, a fashion ad’s influence is relatively minor, but in some ways reinforces the status quo by once again reminding us that white folks are the ones in the forefront and positions of power.
