Apparel maker displays mannequins with pubic hair in store window

The Gothamist reported Thursday that “brave artist” Dov Charney is taking on the “taboo” of pubic hair with his latest window display at New York’s American Apparel.

The article quotes American Apparel’s Ryan Holiday, who said that the graphic display of mannequins with a massive patch of pubic hair was only created for one store.

A statement from American Apparel read,

“American Apparel is a company that celebrates natural beauty, and the Lower East Side Valentine’s Day window continues that celebration. We created it to invite passerby’s to explore the idea of what is ‘sexy’ and consider their comfort with the natural female form. This is the same idea behind our advertisements which avoid many of the photoshopped and airbrushed standards of the fashion industry. So far we have received positive feedback from those that have commented and we’re looking forward to hearing more points of view.”

It seems less like “art” and more like a gimmick to this author.  And a tacky one, at that. Imagine walking your children past this window display? But then again, children in New York have probably seen much worse.
