Remember When Clothing Ads Were Actually Good?Dodai Stewart10/05/07 6:30pmFiled to: retail detailsBenettonFashionstop and shop12EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkHave you been to Benetton lately? Yeah, neither have we. And that's the point Ann Ashworth makes in the Times of London today. She notes how the company's ad campaigns in the '90s made "cardigans hugely culturally significant." Today, the company no longer makes headlines (although photographer Oliviero Toscani, who shot many of their controversial ads a decade ago, recently photographed that anorexic model, as we know.) The world of shopping has changed, Ashworth argues; European retailers H&M and Zara have grown and now serve the trends and basics that Benetton was once the source for.
