So where do we stick our head in?
Italian fashion brand Fendi recently put out a new fur-trimmed shawl that has gone viral – for all the wrong reasons.
The garment, which the internet now affectionately calls the ‘vulva’ scarf, resembles female genitalia, no thanks to its peach pink-coloured silk and brown wool and fur. It’s pretty hard to unsee.

And if the thought of wearing a massive vagina doesn’t turn you off, maybe its price will: £750 (about US$860 or AUS$1,200).
It get really real when you flip it over 😭 pic.twitter.com/eqfNVeoru0

Of course, social media had plenty of jokes.
My DH just said “don’t let bald men wear it” I can’t imagine why… 😂

In response to the ridicule, Fendi has understandably taken down the pink version of the shawl from their website (although other colours are still available). Tough luck for those who want to look young again – like, baby mid-delivery young.
