Farewell bones, hello flesh slink, new fashion magazine praises the feminine curves.
The most beautiful nude painting models are hedonists curves. Feedback time. ” Women Beauty does not stop at size 36“, asserts in the columns of Independent Rivkie Baum, editor of Slink, a new English magazine who wants to reconcile and trendy “plus size” and already sent heavy, with a circulation in 15 countries, because we must go into the goal: “Change the reputation of plus size fashion.”
Fashion in general seems increasingly adopt this “format”. In November, the magazine Vogue was applauded for his shooting lingerie “all sizes”, where one could revel in large size for women like Candice Huffine, Ashley Graham, Marquita Pring … A shot that echoed the new Calvin Klein campaign embodied by Myla Dalbesio and size 42. Not to mention the 2015 Pirelli calendar which opens for the first time in 51 years to house his months in a large model (alleluia).
Two weights, two measures. Some see this trend as a form of “danger”. If the larger sizes allow models to reconcile with the image of the body, they also send the wrong message: healthy overweight.
Slink has already anticipated criticism. ” We are fully aware of our responsibility to promote both healthy body image physically and mentally,” yet argues Rivkie Baum, which highlights a section health, and also boasts a clean new magazine: at Slink, no Photoshop on the beads, just the Photoshop light settings (alleluia bis).
Flash. And if all the magazines in their fashion pages, were converted to the diversity of bodies that are rubbed sizes XS M and XL in a cheerful “fashion democracy.” A multifaceted world without self-segregation. Utopian?
