The Italian fashion label Prada has said it will set up an advisory council on diversity issues afte

r being forced to pull monkey-like keychain figurines from its shelves over accusations of racism.The so-called Pradamalia creatures – featured prominently in the window display of its SoHo store in New York – sparked outrage for their exaggerated red lips that brought blackface caricatures to mind.“We would like to convey our deep regret and sincere apologies for the Pradamalia products that were offensive. They have been removed from the market and will not be sold,” Prada said in a statement released on Twitter on Sunday.“G

oing forward, we pledge to improve our di

versity training and will immediately form an advisory council to guide our efforts on diversity, inclusion and culture,” the label said.“We will learn from this and do better.”The problematic custom of blackface dates back to about 1830, and “minstrel shows”, when white performers caked th

eir faces in greasepaint or shoe

polish and drew on exaggerated lips in a caricature of black people.The stereotypes portrayed – that black people were someho2020年19期跑狗图 w inferior, ignorant, lazy and even anima

listic – cemented racist attitudes for decades.The problem for Prada began with its SoHo store display. A lawyer who passed the store condemned the figurines as racist on Facebook, posting several photographs.At first, the company defended itself, saying its “Pradamalia” were “fantasy charms composed of elements of the Prada oeuvre”, and adding: “They are

imaginary creatures not intended to have any reference to the real world and certainly not blackface.”But when some consumers called

for a boycott of the label, Prada went further in its apology.“The resemblance of the products to blackface was by no means intentio

nal, but we recognise that this does not excuse the damage they have caused,” it said on Sunday, adding that it would investigate how the product reached the market in the first place.Prada also said it would donate any proceeds from Pradamalia already sold to a “New York-based organisation committed to fig

hting for racial

justice, which is a value that we strongly believe in”.
