French fashion house Givenchy has been criticised after models wore necklaces shaped like nooses on the catwalk at its Paris Fashion Week show.

Three models wore gold and silver versions of the accessory at Givenchy's spring-summer 2022 show on Sunday.

It comes two years after Burberry said sorry for a hoodie featuring a noose.

"You'd think the industry would've learned not to put things that resemble nooses around a model's neck," wrote fashion Instagram account Diet Prada.

 

It added: "This @givenchyofficial necklace that just came down the runway steers dangerously close to that same territory. Really makes you wonder how no one noticed, but alas… history repeats itself."

Activist and artist Kim Saira wrote: "How did this go through several people before this show and everyone thought this was OK? And also why am I not surprised?"

 

The necklace was part of Givenchy creative director Matthew Williams' first in-person catwalk show since he joined the luxury brand last summer.

He told Vogue the pieces were "really, really worked and complex", and were created with US artist Josh Smith, inspired by his Grim Reaper paintings.
