Fashion advertising rarely plays it safe, but a group called One Million Moms thinks Armani Exchange has gone too far with their new “Share Love” ads that are displayed in A|X store windows and on their website. Pop the hood for details:
OMM typically focuses on issues that air on television, but there is one other issue we cannot ignore any longer: fashion designers using scantily dressed models in advertisements who have recently put their focus on threesomes or same-s*x couples. This is not okay!
Malls, where teens hang out, have retailers whose window displays poison our children with 10-foot posters that are nothing but soft p*rn. In particular, Armani Exchange has recently displayed Valentine’s posters with partially dressed “couples” holding one another. These couples consist of two men, a man and woman, and two women. The women are scantily dressed while it is questionable if the men have any clothes on at all. Two of these models are used a couple of times to represent bis*xuals. If it could get any worse the text written is “SHARE THE LOVE.”
Lions and Tigers and Bisexuals… OH MY!!! Are the Moms overreacting or do you think they make a good point???
