Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have released a collection dedicated to gay couples. It became a kind of apology for the controversial interview that the designers have given in the past year.
Recall that Domenico and Stefano said that same-sex couples should not have children. They believe that kids should be educated by mom and dad, not two mothers or two fathers. The designers set themselves as an example. “We are gay, and it is clear that we can not have children,” – they said. Children born by surrogate mothers, are called by Dolce and Gabbana artificial.
This statement caused a huge stir. The couple got a lot of criticism, including from celebrities. Elton John, who together with his husband are raising two boys, born by a surrogate mother, called to boycott the brand. Dolce is trying to make excuses. He explained that he was born in Sicily, where the traditional family has a cultish devotion, and their belief will change. But later they apologized.
“I thought a lot about it. We discussed that with Stefano, and I realized that my words were wrong. I’m sorry, I apologize, “- he said.
Stefano published on his Instagram some account pictures with bags and T-shirts, but he did not comment any of them.
