Chanel's Latest Ad Campaign Appropriates Bantu Knots & Cornrows

Karl Lagerfeld puts Bantu knots on white models.

Fashion designers continue to be obsessed with putting black hairstyles on white models.

Karl Lagerfeld is the latest culprit in the new Chanel S/S 2017 ads starring model Arizona Muse with her hair styled in Bantu knots and cornrows.

Back in 2015 Marc Jacobs sent models down the runway in Bantu knots, and just last year put them all in dreadlocks, to much backlash.

But it's obvious the fashion world continues to turn a blind eye to the many people who have repeatedly called them out for taking traditionally black styles and putting them on white models, without properly crediting black culture for giving them the ideas in the first place.

At this point we wonder if they'll ever learn.

And we'd just like to add that, at the very least, Mr. Lagerfeld could've chosen a black model for this campaign.
