Take this new scarf from Fendi, for example. Named ‘The Touch of Fur’, the shawl is salmon in colour with fur trimmings. Priced at just over £750, the shawl is the latest in Fendi’s womenswear collection.
However, the shawl, with dollops of layers and folds, soon became subject to severe trolling after some Twitter users pointed out that it reminded them of the vulva – the outer part of the female genitalia. And true enough, on a second look, the scrf did look an awful lot like a vagina! Many pointed out that wearing the scarf made them resemble how they probably looked when they were first born into the world.
😳 Someone must be trying to work out some … Ah…. mother issues…
