Gucci and Harry Styles Face Major Backlash After Similar Balenciaga Ad


It's safe to say luxury house Gucci didn't learn anything from the Balenciaga fiasco. If anything, it took a page from its competitor's book and is trying the "toddler thing" again.

A new Gucci campaign featured singer and actor Harry Styles with a teddy bear shirt holding a very child-like bed. The HA HA HA collection was released last month, but after Balenciaga's campaign was received negatively, the public didn't want to receive Gucci's campaign at all.

Balenciaga has been widely criticized for the past months after its ad featured toddlers holding teddy bears in bondage gear and documents from a child pornography Supreme Court case in the photo shoot.

Though Gucci is a family-house hold name, the founder's great-granddaughter, Alexandra Gucci Zarini, doesn't like what is happening.

"Why would you create a 'performance piece' with a toddler's mattress and an adult man," Zarani wrote on Instagram.

"My concerns are that there seems to be a common ideology across Kering's fashion houses."
