Fashion & Farm Sex
Benneton Group company Sisley
is well known for ...well, uhm... different images in advertising campaigns. Right now they're using cute animals and evil girls... What do you think about that?

Critics call Abercrombie & Fitch catalog soft porn.
I can't comment on the catalog itself, since I haven't seen it; I just had to laugh out loud though when I read this sentence: "Boycott organizers contend the company... is wooing younger customers and using sex to popularize its image." Oh, the horror! Also striking was A&F's spin on it, calling it " the Norman Rockwell of 2001." Clearly, a divide in perceptions.
Can anyone who has seen the offensive/inoffensive material in question explain why it is/isn't any different from the marketing practices of, oh, say, everyone else

Apparently, the Lt. Governor of Illinois has WAY too much time on her hands...
. Of course, rallying public support for a boycott of Abercrombie & Fitch doesn't really seem
like what she was elected
to do, but hey, never hurts to throw your title around when your teenagers are going ga-ga over half-naked muscle-boys, huh?
