Bondage Bears Christmas Campaign
The scandal erupted when Balenciaga released its holiday 2022 advertising campaign. Bag looks like a teddy bear and is wearing BDSM gear.
At the photo shoot, the children also appeared surrounded by empty wine and champagne glasses.
The decidedly adult theme quickly annoyed many who asked why children were used.
Balenciaga initially seems to have ignored the scandal, allowing photographer Gabriele Galimberti, who was involved, to get hot.
He issued a statement that he had no control over the content of the shoot, and Balenciaga eventually agreed with him, issuing its own statement taking responsibility for the campaign.
I just pulled it from the net.
hidden child pornography documents
After the BDSM debacle, discerning critics began scrutinizing the rest of Balenciaga’s campaign.
They soon discovered that in the background of the Spring ’23 campaign images was a printout of a Supreme Court ruling on whether child pornography on the Internet could legally be considered free speech.
Behind the bear scandal, many critics said it showed a troubling pattern within Balenciaga.
Balenciaga was quick to blame North Six, the production company that helped arrange the shoot, for including those documents.
They outsourced all props for the photo shoot to North Six, claiming the team was convinced everything included was fake.
The artist’s nasty book depicting a naked castrated infant
Balenciaga has yet to comment on including Michael Borremans’ book in the background of two images in its Spring ’23 campaign.
Borremans is a Belgian painter with a troubling series called Fire From The Sun in 2017.
Naked infants (some castrated) are depicted playing in groups and sometimes alone.
A lawyer for the brand has yet to respond to DailyMail.com’s question about how the book was used in the photo shoot.
In this image from Balenciaga’s discarded Spring ’23 campaign, Isabelle Huppert sits in front of a book honoring Belgian painter Michael Borremans, known for containing depictions of castrated infants.
Borremans’ other work includes the 2017 series Fire From The Sun, in which castrated infants and babies play naked in large groups while holding what appear to be severed limbs.
