22 Black Owned Luxury Brands To Support Instead of GUCCI and Prada

in All Posts/Black Money by

Gucci issued an apology for the offense caused by their “blackface sweater”. I don’t accept. In fact, at this point, I’m convinced that these “mistakes” are part of these folks’ marketing strategy. They can’t be that clueless.

That being said, here is a list of Black owned luxury brands that you can use to replace brands like Gucci and Prada that refuse to act right.

Andrea Iyamah

Hideoki Bespoke

Romeo Hunte

LaQuan Smith


Fe Noel

Undra Celeste

  1. Im a huge Pyer Moss and T–Michael, love the gear they put out. It sucks that a clothing brand like Prada and Gucci are doing stupid stuff like this but, these past few years has let out the crazy. Also another one is or lbehavior. They are a more causal approach but their clothes feel really good.

  2. Supported!

    Black people should start buying brands by black designers because it is one way of shunning the oppression and exploitation of black people and financially empowering black businesses!

    Black businesses should advertise more and support programs that empower black communities!

    It is a two way street!

  3. It would be icing if they all used only ethnic models. Which poses the question: do they feel that they have to use white models in their advertisements to make a profit?

  4. This is the first time that I ever heard of these brand and I glad that I know about them now. I never shop at Gucci, Prada or the other brands because those are the brand that my mom and professors been saying that the clothes in those shop were never made for ‘us’ but for ppl that are super thin. Target is now selling shirts with noose picture on it with saying ‘ Hang Loose’, or another store that is selling chain bracelet that looks like the ones that the slave was forced to wear. It is disgusting of how these brands are racially products and think that this generation won’t know this.

  5. I am looking for several things in Los Angeles county area blacked owned nail shops,and clothing etc………..and beauty supplies.

  6. Black designers with white models… miss me with that shit. These are not black designers for they would know the importance of seeing black models with black physique shapes modeling designer clothes for black people. Stop this…

  7. Because unfortunately we jave been conditioned to not support black owned buisnesses but to instead think if its white it must be right dont hate the players hate the game because this is the world we live in and have all equally accepted as normal

  8. Fantastic story angle! The only designer and work that I am familiar with of your list is T-Michael. But, I will check out the others and the many more who have been listed in your comments section. But, here is my only complaint, (or wish). Why are these designers and their wares considered luxury? What are the components, craftsmanship, artistry, etc behind them that justifies their value and a luxury stamp? I would LOVE to see a Black brand that held its own in the ranks of a PRADA, GUCCI, ROLEX, et alia. And with that, I’d like to add my friend’s company:

    Ron Donovan
    Custom/Bespoke Footwear

  9. In an ideal world Blacks would and should boycott all that is white where possible. But in the real world we “Brothers” have family issues. Let’s stop chatting shit and start talking about those issues.
    The only thing we buy off blacks regularly is drugs.

  10. Absolutely love this site! Thank you for contributing to restoring our people BACK to our original greatness!!! LOVE & LIGHT TO EVERYONE!
