ilvaNotice how the mainstream use latex clothing to promote and sell a huge variety of products, from muscle cars to Lady Gaga! And latest product that can be added to the list is… believe it or not… furniture!

Take a look at the spring catalogue of the Scandinavian furniture giant ILVA.

It’s Marla Rutherford‘s iconic photo of the beautiful Viktoria Modesta in the Stripe Cape from TG Clothing… PROMOTING A UGLY STRIPED COUCH!

Ouch, what a cover to be remembered for!

    He he he yeah!
    I was like, WTF?!? When I saw that frontpage!!

    But why not, I don’t think anyone except for the few that know the original picture think about it as a latexpicture and if the photographer have had a load of money… everyone should be happy….

    More interesting is… who is the Art Director/Graphic Artist and how come he/she knows that picture! ;)
