Radar reports The Italian Advertising Institute (IAA) has banned the above right ad for Tom Ford Sunglasses, labeling it “sexually implicit”. “[It] goes beyond acceptable limits for advertising aimed at the general public”, says the institute. Meanwhile, the Tom Ford perfume ads in America, some of which appeared in ArtForum earlier this year, and prompted our discussion, have escaped censorship in this country. Since sexually explicit material doesn’t seem to faze the US at all, if Tom Ford really wanted to piss people off he’d consider dreaming up a line of fragrances that smell like Iraqi oil. He can call the line Haliburton, and see how far he gets with that in this country.
