Dolce & Gabbana's Spring/Summer 2013 Earrings Racist?

Dolce & Gabbana have come under fire for an accessory included in their latest Spring/Summer 2013 showing. The item in question is a pair of earrings which has been deemed racist. The long danging jewellery item, which featured several times during the show depicts a black woman in a typical blackamoors style with a bright turban and large lips. Fashion blog Refinery29 wrote on the subject: 
“The luxury brand debuted a spring ’13 collection that rested heavily on the laurels of a long-lost colonial era, complete with all the cartoonish, debasing, subaltern imagery that would make even your politically incorrect Grandpa think twice.”
