American Apparel made a huge statement this week when they posted their mannequins on their store front. Sliding past the lingerie display, your eyes will immediately shift to the pubic hairs the mannequins are sporting.
“We created it to invite passerby’s to explore the idea of what is ‘sexy’ and consider their comfort with the natural female form,” a rep for AA told Elle Magazine. “This is the same idea behind our advertisements which avoid many of the photoshopped and airbrushed standards of the fashion industry.”
While they are promoting the “natural state,” they still aren’t promoting the natural woman that comes in all shapes, sizes, and complexions. Yet as bold of a statement as this is, the company is known to always stay ahead of the curve with their fashion always having a distinct look and quality to it. They’ve been receiving mixed reviews on this, as expected, but are predicted to get a nice flow of traffic to their lower east side display window in NY.
Vixens, what’s your thoughts on their display?
