Abercrombie & Fitch 'The Emperor's New Clothes'

Abercrombie & Fitch has releasing a new catalog by Bruce Weber full of sexual shots with not even clothing by teen models. But this time, it will be sold only in London and priced "like an art book" at close to $200. Socialites in London response said that's porn more than the art.

The last A&F catalog in 2003, which sold for just $6 in the US, but because of complaints about sexually suggestive photographs, company stopped making them. But the A&F stores still love the scandalous pictures.

Abercrombie & Fitch's new catalog not even clothes...

...Again, with cloths but not on body

So, is art or porn?

In February, police removed two ads with Weber's images from a Virginia Beach store and charged the manager with obscenity. The police issued the summons after Abercrombie management did not heed warnings to remove the images after some customers complained. One picture showed three shirtless young men, with one man’s upper buttocks showing. The other image was of a woman whose breast was mostly exposed.
