Cardi B collabs with Reebok in a new campaign
Reebok and Cardi B are ready to present their first-ever footwear collection collaboration. Reebok will officially release the new footwear on November 13, their mission is to inspire women by expressing their true selves while making a fashion statement.
Cardi B received her inspiration from a dystopian world while using the Club C silhouette as the main cue.
Cardi considered using bold, transparent designs. The Club C Cardi ($100) and the Cardi Coated Club C Double ($80) will both be available in women’s and children’s footwear sizes.
To support the launch of her collaboration, Cardi B will be staring in a Reebok campaign that will be titled “B Unexplainable,” she will be celebrating her passion for design, equality, and personal growth.
Even though we are very proud Of Cardi B’s Reebok collaboration, she has been called out for appropriating Hindu culture
The images of the cover show Cardi B dressed as the Hindu goddess Durga holding the new Club C. For those who don’t know who Durga is, she is a beautiful goddess who represents war and strength, and traditionally holds weapons in her eight arms.
In Hindu culture, shoes are not permitted in temples; in this case, Cardi B was holding her brand new Club C. After she received a lot of backlash from the Reebok campaign, the rapper removed the images from her social media pages and responded in a video.
“When I did the Reebok shoot, the creatives were telling me that I was going to represent a goddess that represents strength, femininity, and liberation, and that’s something that I love and that I’m all about and I thought that it was dope, but if people think I’m offending their culture or their religion, I want to say I’m sorry,” she said.
“That was not my intent. I do not like disrespecting nobody’s religion,” Cardi said.
