Thanks to tipster Amy for sending me this lovely story about CK. This is a great example of how we all wear certain designer clothes, but we don’t really think about their advertising do we?
Here I mean the bad side of their advertising.
Have you ever boycotted a certain brand because their ads were demeaning, gross, or semi-pornish like this little diddy which was deemed over the top…even in NYC;
Let’s see…that’s 1, 2, 3 guys on what appears to be a teenish-girl.
Nothing new for the designer who has dedicated his career to pushing the envelope starting with Brooke Shields at 15.
I felt odd viewing this one, because from my perspective, EVERY designer has been posing children like this, for decades actually, and no one really cares.
Below we have a “Secret Obsession” ad that can’t mean anything other than – I am into an affair with a kid.
Now this next one is a video, what was literally banned. Banned because it features kids, in a creepy-old-wood-paneled basement answering the questions of some panting pervert (watch the whole thing).
I gotta be honest guys, it kind of scared me that this didn’t freak me out.
But it gave me a flashback.
This is exactly what it was like to be a model, especially in Paris (minus the paneling). You are a piece of meat, with some gross guy telling you how to move, stand up, sit down, nice ass, show me your tits, give me your self-respect, hand over your modesty, don’t be such a prude.
Ahh, the good old days.
PS I had to end with this dude. Where did they rescue him from – the Circus? They could have at least let him take a shower.
