When Will The Term “Wifebeater” Finally Be Retired?
Posted by Clem Bastow on June 27, 2008
A reader alerted us to this, er, fashion initiative: meet Silicone Saturdays! Designed in Perth by identical twins Brooke and Lauren, the range is based around crotch-skimming “wifebeaters” (their words) featuring flashy slogans like “HIGH HEELS WILL KILL YOU” and “DIRTY DIRTY BRITNEY”. And the ‘look book’ photos speak for themselves:
I take it the faintly exploitative feel of the photos on their store’s site is intentional; a hint is their 2Threads profile, which describes their tastes as including “Victoria’s Secret on the tits”. Though I doubt they intented to completely objectify their models by making sure the majority of them had their faces obscured, but then perhaps that’s too generous for a label with the name Silicone Saturdays.
You know, aren’t we all over the whole “raunch culture”/post-fem thing by now?
(Thanks to miss gemma for the heads up!)
