News - 19 Mar `19Cheap Shot at Winnie Harlow with Vitiligo-Print Leggings?

New

A weird video describing a controversy in the issue of Harpers Bazaar from January 2019 just caught an eye of our editor. Is Tom Ford replicating an animal print in it's leggings or is it a cheap shot at Winnie Harlow and vitiligo? (Spoiler alret: We think it's neither of these.)

Tom Ford, the 56-year-old designer, is re-living the ’80s. His fall 2018 collection emphasizes flashy skin-tight leggings, sequined animal print jackets, and roomy faux fur coats. Opposite from Winnie Harlow appearance, there is no an exposed knee to be seen in the collection. It’s hard, though, to tell if Ford has captured the moment of true wilderness or missed the mark and made it look like the vitiligo pattern, for whatever reason. 

Take a look at this video when you have an extra minute or two, and drop us a line with your thoughts at info@vrfoundation.org or via almost any social media out there.
