Say what you want about the Nazis no woman has ever had a fantasy about being tied up and beaten by a man dressed as a liberal

Well, it looks like I’ve already fallen foul of the new offence of looking at torture porn on the Internet

It’s amazing what they’ll print in Vogue these days.

There are some nice high-res scans of the full set here. Alternatively, Vogue have put them all together in a tasteful flash animation; including some loud police siren noises and feet hovering up and down above models’ necks.

Serious social commentary or the manifestation of a fucked-up superficial mindset taken straight out of Zoolander?

Let me show you Derelicte. It is a fashion, a way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants, the crack whores that make this wonderful city so unique.

Truly we live in an age where parody is virtually obsolete

And let’s face it, the fashion industry does have a track record for this sort of thing. Ever thought that those black SS uniforms looked kind of cool? Well, you can thank Hugo Boss for that.

Whatever the thinking behind the Vogue photographs, it’s all very peculiar … and strangely arousing.

Looks like a manifestation of simple misogyny to me.
