Thoughts On Pop Culture,
Sex & Fashion

1. Iggy Pop 1996
2. Anthony Kiedis 1984
3. Ann Demeulemeester Spring/Summer 2003
4. Maison Martin Margiela Spring/Summer 1989

The sexualization of our everyday life is supposedly enforced by images of pop culture and advertising. Yet, the tension between covering and revealing seems more like a cyclical variation. Things being perceived as explicit in 2012 are despaired and prudish compared to 1996 (Iggy Pop in plastic trousers) or 2004 (Janet Jackson's Nipplegate). We've come so far and still, topless men and visible nipples are scandalous shockers. Why don't we dare anymore?
