Consider this the first attempt of the fashion industry to comment on Occupy Wall Street that you can actually feel good about. Vice Magazine took a couple of male models down to New York’s Zuccoti Park, dressed them up like stockbrokers and had do awful things only really mean members of the 1% would do.
The spread, cleverly called American Psychos, features four young and immensely businesslike looking guys wearing suits from Dior Homme and Vivienne Westwood, taunting the occupation with things that only rich people can do. They eat caviar nonchalantly. They hold up signs that say “It’s Not My (De)Fault.” They wear shirts by Ben Sherman.
But by the end of the spread, the stockbrokers are hugging the protesters and even joining in on their drum circle. It’s almost as if Vice is trying to tell us that at the end of the day, we’re all in the same boat.
Check out our favorite pictures from the spread below. You’ll find the whole thing here.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
