Yes, the dreads are upsetting, but it did not end there.
When I first saw the pictures of the S/S 2017 runway show, I scoffed and was prepared to part with some respect for the designer. In my opinion, Marc Jacobs is a great designer. Jacobs seems to always manage to be playful and startling but not at the expense of elegance so I was disappointed to see this. The use of mainly white models in dread locs to me read like a cheap grab at publicity, which happens all the time in fashion.
