Culture: American Apparel Mannequins - Back To Nature?

(Drivebycuriosity) - Shopping windows have to catch the attention of passengers. Often they entertain, sometimes they provoke.  The fashion chain American Apparel has a tradition in provocation.

Now their shop on Houston Street on New York`s Lower East Side has something special: Their shopping window displays mannequins with clearly visible pubic hair.

The public relation coup got a lot media echo of course. Even papers in overseas reported about the hairy display (dailymail). The German media site "Der Spiegel" titled his report "back to nature" (Zurück zur Natur spiegel).

Last December the New York Times had an article about an alleged comeback of the pubic hair (nytimes). Maybe so. But I remember the film "Blue is the warmest color", where the girls were neatly shaved (driveby). Their behavior showed one reason why they did that. At least no compass was needed.
