La Perla Removes Scarily Skinny Mannequin
Posted Thursday May 15, 2014 10:05 AM GMT
When Michael Rudoy was out shopping on Sunday (May 11), he noticed a disturbing sight in the window of the La Perla store.
It wasn't the lingerie that caught his eye, instead it was the mannequin wearing it. The plastic figure had an unappealing appearance, sporting protruding ribs.
Troubled by the image, Mr. Rudoy took to Twitter to call the brand out on the shockingly thin mannequin.
Not wasting any time, La Perla responded to the tweet and removed the display, commenting, "We have an update on this issue: The mannequin photographed has been removed from the store and will not be used again by any La Perla boutique. We are in the process of redesigning all La Perla stores with a new concept image and the mannequins that are currently displayed in our US stores will no longer be used. We appreciate and value everyone's comments, thank you for bringing this to our attention."
