Brothers of Arcadia: Thierry Mugler Men’s X-Rated Video

Fashion Sexy Nicola Formichetti Brothers Arcadia
In the art world there’s a fine line between avant-garde and obscene. It’s all very grey. More often than not, fashion designers push the boundaries of their advertisements, sometimes to the point at which their campaigns are banned from running.

Thierry Mugler’s then-Creative Director and stylist to Lady Gaga, Nicola Formichetti is the latest in our industry to stir the pot. For Mugler Men’s Spring/Summer campaign, Formichetti directed a video short called “Brothers of Arcadia”. It debuted on YouTube yesterday, already NSFW (Not Something For Work).
However, an uncensored, x-rated version has surfaed today on porn site XTube.com. It’s a very unusual strategy for a fashion house.

I was interested in the idea of fantasy, dreams and voyeurism,” Formichetti says. “I was looking at Italian Neo-Realist cinema and then, post-that, where Fellini and Pasolini become more about myth and fantasy.

At the same time, I loved the idea and accessibility of pornography and everyday voyeurism on Xtube. Fashion is always referencing pornography, so there was an element in doing this film of just ‘cutting out the middleman,’ but it is an erotic fashion film nonetheless.
The film featuring music by Jessica 6 features male models Matthieu Charneau, Travis Cannata (Ford D), Esmir Redzepagic (Red), Peter Pagan, Justin Barnhill (Click), Ellie Ross (One Management), and Nomi Ruiz of Jessica 6.

So, what are your thoughts?
Is this fashion as an excuse to be sexually explicit in the public space, or are we moving towards a more progressive society?Campaign Brothers Arcadia Softporn Fanzine For Mugler Spring Summer
