Burberry Prorsum has released its 2012 Resort Collection and African prints feature prominently in the new line up. You can view the whole collection here at Vogue.
I’ve asked this question before, and will ask again:
What do you think of African prints being used in high fashion? Is it appreciation or appropriation? There are two opinions when Western labels and designers use African prints: The “Oh-my-God-They-Are-Appropriating-African-Culture-and-Tradition-For-Consumer-Profit-And-Africa-Doesnt-Benefit-From-It” side and the “Well-Its-Great-Someone-In-The-West-Is-Finally-Appreciating-The-African-Aesthetic” side.
Where do you fall?
