Givenchy slammed for noose necklace at Paris fashion week

Well, that’s not the best fashion statement.

Luxury French fashion house Givenchy is being blasted for debuting a noose-style necklace during Paris fashion week.

A model wore the offending piece of jewelry Sunday during the label’s spring/summer 2022 show.

The unfortunate style choice was first called out by the Instagram account Diet Prada.

“You’d think the industry would’ve learned not to put things that resemble nooses around a model’s neck after the whole @Burberry noose hoodie debacle in 2019. This @givenchyofficial necklace that just came down the runway steers dangerously close to that same territory. Really makes you wonder how no one noticed, but alas … history repeats itself,” the account wrote alongside a side-by-side photo of the Givenchy runway model and a Burberry model.

In 2019, Burberry was criticized during London fashion week for a catwalk model wearing a noose embossed on a hoodie.

The noose necklace was featured in Givenchy's Spring/Summer 2022 show.

As weary fashionistas made it to the final sprint of Paris Fashion Week’s 96 physical and digital spring-summer shows, Saturday’s runways provided the spark to keep energy going, despite rain and gray skies. Some of the world’s top designers channeled humor, bright colors, innovative design techniques and even animated films for ever-imaginative displays.

Mixing Glam Rock references from Westwood’s 80s heyday with historic musing and a tongue firmly in cheek, Kronthaler created 66 pieces of fashion mayhem and put on one of the most fun shows this Paris fashion season.

All the Best Front Row Style from Paris Fashion Week

The Paris collections are fashion’s main event, and there has been plenty of style on display at the spring/summer 2022 shows currently underway. As celebrities from across the globe fly in to experience the latest from Dior, Saint Laurent, Chanel, and Givenchy, they’re bringing their A-game and suitcases filled with designer goodies. After several seasons of virtual events and live-streamed runways, PFW’s calendar of in-person events has led to a front-row renaissance and plenty of high drama ensembles.

To honor the Thierry Mugler, Couturissime retrospective at Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Cardi B arrived at the museum in a classic from the Mugler archives. The red sequined bustier gown and feathered stole from the designer’s fall/winter 1995 collection was exquisite when it debuted on Eva Herzigova nearly two decades earlier. Cardi recreated the look down to the blonde coif and bejeweled
