& OTHER STORIES

& Other Stories recently launched their new line of lingerie using so-called “real” models.

The campaign itself features “blemishes” that are usually excluded from such images: armpit hair, tattoos, scars and slouching – recalling American Apparel’s ‘Meet Buttercup’ campaign from the spring and Neon Moon‘s recent body pos campaign #IAmNeonMoon. A quick peek at their UK website, however, only appears to show the tattooed model and indeed we are only given a glimpse of her body art suggesting a disconnect between PR and the actual selling of products.
