Prada (I know, I know)

Hey groovy kids, Pino is back on the interwebs and ready to do what I do fairly okay at!

I know I have ranted and raved about how pathetic Prada are if they think decent human beings are going to spend USD$1500 on a shoulder bag or USD$240 on a pair of casual flats, despite the fact that their clothing isn’t usually that innovative (at least when push comes to shove), but after seeing their 2010 spring campaign I just had to show it to you folks (I still wouldn’t buy ANY of it and I encourage you all to buy well made fakes in defiance).

Needless-to-say, Yang Fudong, the photographer and mind behind this campaign, has outdone himself.

A Clothes Rack That Dries Your Clothes for You

What can I say, this little gadget blows air through the hollow hangers and then folds up to a tiny 250*520*320.

Men’s Brassieres Top Sellers

This is straight from Rakuten, an online mall:

“It started with a customer’s remark: “Why aren’t there any bras for men?” Why? Because they are not necessary? But there are people who want them, so in fact they are necessary. Men’s bodies are different from those of women, so a rethinking was required. Materials, design, and even the feeling… Of course, there’s no need, but… It’s gentle and relaxing; those feelings should be important.

“But I’m a man!” Even with someone like you, we’d like for you to experience that gentleness.

Point 1:Choice of materials.
We’ve selected the same material used in men’s shorts. Soft and stretchable, a good fit is assured.

Point 2: Freedom of fit.
We’ve employed the “spectacles” design of bra front. The bra can freely move with your chest. Also, you can freely adjust the position of the bra.

Point 3: Relaxation.
Unlike ladies’ brassieres, the straps are soft and gentle. Rather than a “bust up” effect, we stress relaxation.

There’s an internal pocket for padding! If you need more volume, just slip in a pad!

With this, you can experience “men’s love”. Men want to experience the feelings of women! Your body is that of a man, but you feel like a boy maiden! You want to experience those soothing feelings? You need chest support! They might be all sorts of reasons, but gentleness is what you desire most.”

I honestly know people would definitely benefit form something like this.

Bust Reducing Bra: “Selling Like Hot Cakes”

I have two bra related entries for you guys to feast your eyes on so stay tuned :)!

Well I have done the bust increasing bra so why not the bust reducing bra? According to the makers of the bra:

“We conducted a survey of women aged 20 to 40, and 10.7% said they ‘wanted to display their bust in a compact fashion’ – this was the impetus for developing the bra. Women with a complex about having large breasts aren’t few in number.

This isn’t as rare as you might think with a good friend of mine who is undertaking breast-reduction surgery and even my sister has contemplated the jump under the knife for the sake of a little reduction.

The survey also found 24.6% wanted bras to give them a size boost, but the majority were more concerned with practicalities – 32.9% wanted a comfortable “natural” fit, and 32.8% “firm support.” Because of this the bra is said to be enjoying some really good sales.
