The images show various well-outfitted women in positions of power and dominance, while the men featured act as mere background scenery; as furniture. Some are accusing Suistudio vice president Kristina Barricelli and her advertising team of promoting the very forms of human objectification that they claim to abhor.

By Clemence Michallon For Dailymail. A clothing company that has made 'not dressing men' its slogan is further making its point with a series of ads featuring naked males next to ladies in their power suits. Suistudio, a suit label that originated in Amsterdam and is opening its first US boutique in New York City this month, has released a new series of edgy ads giving women center stage. The pictures appear to be a tongue-in-cheek reversal of the objectification of women frequently observed in the advertising world, with female models often depicted in sexual, submissive positions. Ooh la la: Clothing company Suistudio, which has made 'not dressing men' its slogan, is further making its point with ads featuring naked males next to ladies in their power suits. Their turn? The pictures appear to be a tongue-in-cheek reversal of the objectification of women frequently observed in the advertising world. Making a point: Suistudio, which is opening its first US boutique in New York City this month, released the new series of edgy ads giving women center stage. In one of the photos, a woman can be seen wearing a beige suit, sitting on a couch and looking confidently into the camera, while a man lies on the ground completely naked, resting on a furry rug. Another picture features another female model clad in a grey suit, also sitting on a couch, but this time resting her hand on a man's naked butt cheek.
A women's suit company has launched a racy new ad campaign featuring women in sleek, tailored suits alongside men in, well, nothing. Dutch suit label Suistudio has taken their slogan "Not Dressing Men" to a whole new level by including buff, butt-naked men in the promo shots for their latest fashion line. The photos show women dressed in well-fitted suits and clearly in a position of power, while the naked men are featured in the background and are almost used as a type of prop. One of the pictures shows a woman sitting on a lounge dressed in a beige suit while she rests her feet on the naked man stretched out beneath her. Another features a woman in a sleek black suit, lounging on a couch with her hand on a man's bare butt. The photos are all set in what looks like a luxury high-rise apartment, with the woman always front and centre and the man in the background or half out of the frame with his face concealed. Enjoy this power suit ladies. The studio is using the campaign as a statement to highlight the sexist way women are commonly portrayed in advertisements, particularly when selling products aimed at men. Vice president of Suistudio USA Kristina Barricelli said the pictures bring focus to the normalised way women are often sexualised and used as objects in advertisements - the men aren't portrayed in any way that women haven't been before. Sex is a big part of fashion," she told online new site Upworthy.
The media. That nameless, faceless, ubiquitous and oppressive force that touches all of us regardless of age, race, or gender. How much should I weigh? Whom should I vote for? Hours and hours of our days are spent using media: we get messages from the time we check our phone in the morning to the moment we turn off the news at night.
And the messages are coming faster and faster and faster. There are messages that run so deep in our culture that we are unable to recognize their existence. Imagine living all your life in an entirely red room, and then being asked to describe the colour red.
What the media is really selling is that female power is derived by pleasing men, and that our value to society is measured by our sexual desirability. This is logically impossible. Sexual Objectification is passive, powerless, and controlled by another. A yes to any one of these questions means that it is. Does the image show a sexualized person as interchangeable?
Does the image suggest that the sexual availability of the person is the defining characteristic of that person? Does the image show a sexualized person as a commodity, something that can be bought and sold? The Representation Project , a movement that seeks to expose gender inequalities, developed the NotBuyingIt app to publicly shame companies that sexualize women.
This app has brought about real change. Does the image present a sexualized person as a stand-in for an object? The perspectives shared on this blog come from many different writers, both YW staff and YW community members.
