I don’t know where in the world a noose hanging from a girl’s neck is considered acceptable. fashion#Givenchy
Spring/Summer 2022 was dragged back to 1822. Matthew, do better, both for the brand as well as the world. Young girls and boys don’t have to see this at every stage, especially #ParisFashionWeek. Tch. pic.twitter.com/Uh3RUyhVqi
