New Marc Jacobs Ad Exploits Violence Against Women

From the latest edition of Vogue comes this ad for Marc Jacobs (click on the image to see the larger ad).  To see the whole thing for yourself, go to his website   click on the rat (???) and then click on Ads under the Collections menu.

Most ads are just annoying.  This goes over the line.  It is clearly a scene involving a violent crime against a woman.  How does this tie in with selling clothes?  Clothes for women? 

Hmmm ….I think I'll cancel my subscription to Vogue (ha ha).  I wonder what Stella McCartney thinks?

 

You can let Vogue know what you think about this kind of advertising talkingback@vogue.com
