Thanks to Gothamist, pubic hair is in the news yet again. First it was Cameron Diaz who said that women shouldn’t have to shave down there, and now American Apparel is bringing that idea to life for all of us to see. In a recent window display on East Houston St. in New York City, the store decided to tape on, or glue on (we’re not exactly sure what they did), a big patch of hair to the female mannequins. Then they put skimpy, white lingerie on top, so there was NO way to miss it.
No one really knows why this particular American Apparel decided to go au natural, but it definitely got people interested. Houston is quite a busy street in the city, and many people were stopping to take a closer look. Two older women spotted the bushes and immediately fell over laughing. When I took my pictures of the display and went inside to ask about them, the associate said to me, “What, you don’t like the display?”
Everyone is taking about spring trends right now, and it looks like pubic hair will be one of them. Who knows, maybe other stores will start following suit! Could you see J.Crew showing off a bikini with some hair peaking through? Yeah, probably not. We hope this look just stays at American Apparel.
