Why Dorian Gray Is The Right Poster Boy For The Age Of Abercrombie & Fitch
Director Neil Bartlett: "I know exactly what [a hunky model on an A&F billboard] is peddling. It's the idea that sexual shamelessness - by which I mean not Saturday-night recklessness, but a genuine freedom from shame - is something that you can buy. ... [The] diabolical, corrupting contract between beauty and shame is exactly what Wilde is anatomising in Dorian Gray." The Guardian (UK) 10/08/12
