A clarification via the designers' online magazine, Swide.com: "The show jewellery is reminiscent of ornate ceramics that often appear in Sicilian homes, restaurants and hotels. The head is inspired by traditional Moorish people, a term used to describe the Medieval Muslim inhabitants of Sicily — a place that consistently inspires Dolce & Gabbana designs and the native country of Domenico Dolce." So, steeped in history, yes. But still a bit racist in the sense that, you know, colonial Europe was kind of prejudiced against people of color.
