Marc Jacobs Show Under Fire Again – This Time Over Head Wraps

Dreadlocks last year…head wraps this year.

Marc Jacobs is no stranger to controversy but the latest is like déjà vu all over again. For Spring/Summer 2017, the designer courted backlash over pastel rainbow dreadlocks.

Hair stylist Guido Palau cited ’70s glam inspiration but made no mention to its origins. In a piece written by Helen Bradley Griebel and recalled by Allure, the head wrap is:

“Worn by millions of enslaved women and their descendants has served as a uniform of communal identity; but at its most elaborate, the African American woman’s headwrap has functioned as a ‘uniform of rebellion’ signifying absolute resistance to loss of self-definition.”
