Dolce & Gabbana Explains Those Controversial Earrings

A clarification via the designers' online magazine, "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.
