New Relish Ads Depict Women Getting Assaulted

A sketch from the fall 2008 collection.

New ads for Italian clothing company Relish depict men dressed as Rio de Janeiro cops assaulting female models in Relish clothes. In the photo at left, a cop sticks his hand up one woman's dress. Another image shows two cops pushing a woman's face into the ground. The mayor of Rio has condemned the ads — which are actually on billboards in Italy — for "compromising the image" of the city, with no mention of the disgusting portrayal of women. Real smart, Relish. Which of you ladies wants to spend your money on this brand's stuff? That's what we thought. [Shakesville via Jezebel]
