Brian Atwood Campaign Ruffles Feathers in New York

Sep 19, 2012  |   Contributor: Sally Farris

Arguably the most intimate act is currently on display on every street corner, billboard, and television set for everyone to see. Everywhere we look, there is sex, or sexy people seductively posing with often unexciting products. Advertisers bank on the fact that people like sex, so they associate beautiful people with the product they are selling, subliminally suggesting that it will get you laid.

But shoe designer, Brian Atwood’s latest campaign featuring a scantily clad Candice Swanepoel and a few other nude models is now being considered a little too sexy to play on the inside of New York City Taxi Cabs, where grandmother’s and small children will potentially be scarred for life....

If ever there were a young, up-and-coming luxury designer to watch, it’s Mathieu Mirano. The Manhattan native is a mere 21 years old — but don’t let that steer you away. With already two collections under his belt, his latest is inspired by dinosaurs, but the designs are anything but immature. His use of fossil fabrics combined with intricate detail resulted in a show of the utmost sophistication.
