Gucci’s Pre-Fall Campaign “Soul Scene” is a Celebration of Diversity



Finally we get to see what Gucci was up to when they shared series of teaser videos on Instagram back in January when the question “What does it mean to have soul?” was asked to the cast of models.

Gucci’s pre-fall 2017 campaign has been released. Photographed by Glen Luchford, the campaign is notably fronted entirely by black models dancing and dressed to match the soul theme.

      Honestina, are you for real? Instead of celebrating that a global brand such as Gucci is taking a step away from the ‘standard white beauty’ you are criticising?! If it were the ‘opposite’ then it would just be business as usual! How many brands use ONE black model for their campaigns let alone a whole team of black models? Answers on a postcard please.

      My answer is on an Easter card not postcard.
      My issue is simple, why do we believe featuring an all black models in a campaign is embracing diversity but when all whites are used, we cry foul?? I hope in future should Gucci decide to go all white, we won’t forget this particular moment and cry racism. Remember we’re in an era of equality.
