    Although we wish West lots of success with the new site, it still smacks of porn, as gentile as it is. Is nice that he takes his influence from E.J.Bellocq and the Storyville Portraits. But its about time Mr West moves on, just think about what we are really saying in this new promotion and what influence we may well have.

    I think a bit of eroticism sometime doesnt hurt anyone – Also knowing of course that its not him doing the post, i think his new site took a great turn by first the way it looks and second by the content. His new blog is pretty conceptual, with no clutter information, its straight to the point. Also you might didnt understood that the latest post on E.J.Bellocq and the Storyville Portraits is just a review, there is more content inside the site…

    So its not his post and he has no control of the content,is this like a factory, perhaps we, yes trendland should ask what he thinks about using photos of naked women to…. where are we going here, whats the word, Anachronism. Oh yes of course back wards. thats why trendland wants to know. Because a trend has to be a forward thinking right!

    Re: ‘new phases of sophistication’, super refreshing’… don’t get it! its a shame that Mr West’s attempts at being sophisticated is tainted by loads of the same old, same old, churned out sexist images of women. Yes, you throw in a bit of class with gilded frames, reference a bit of slick, black and white boudoir burlesque, a bit of fashioney, tribal street style to add the ‘cool’ factor blah blah but it overwhelming feel is that the choices are anachronistic.
    By the way, one really needs to know the difference between ‘eroticism’ and porn (too massive a subject to go into here). Re the opening top image on this page – I can’t see how any intelligent person viewing this image cannot see the influence of pornographic imagery here. Its unimaginative visually and this objectification of women is odious and tedious to many of us. Please, lets move on, get into the 21st Century and get more inventive visually and spiritually.

    Edwin and TenderHook,
    I understand that both of you are really upset about his latest post, eroticism/pornography, sexiest images of women… But please dont get upset at us for communicating on Kanye’s new web venture. we just wanted to share with our readers about his new blog, who is (compare to his old one) more clean & fresh as well as more fashion oriented… I understand too, that we are talking only about his latest post here… You all know that hip hop and fashion are both world interested into sexy image of women, the influence of pornographic imagery has been around those industry for decade, but i guess this is a different debate.

  • TenderHook

    Thanks Cyril. Understand all that, but one has to be vigilant and aware of the topical news about all these sexist images and their effect/s on females (and males). A lot of this stuff does well because it panders to insecurities. The fact that something has been around for ages is not a good defense, longevity of retrograde behaviour does not reflect progress, which is the issue here.
    I like Cyana Trendland generally but sites also have a responsibility. Maybe you could balance your images more especially when it comes to fashionable nude images of girls and women (Love Magazine for example) so that younger people, in particular, have more varied imagery to negotiate when viewing an ‘on trend’ look and the potential, encumbering behaviour.
    The music industry, and hip hop in particular, has had a retrogressive effect on perceptions of women. It seems no female artist, (even the more creative ones like GaGa), can be taken seriously nowadays unless she is writhing and scantily dressed. Apart from being tediously macho orientated, repetitive and generally humourless, its uncreative. Men are lucky in this respect – they are not bombarded with this nonsense and are therefore more relaxed about themselves, free of sexualising pressures. I rest my case…. Over and Out

  • http://www.themobilediary.com Cyril Style

    Agreed in most part but Men are also subject to objectification (have a look here). I understand your point of view, it is just that we are not gone ignore or censor articles because there is nudity, and especially if one of the best fashion magazine like Love is doing a cover with naked models.

  • TenderHook

    Thanks for that Cyril. Interesting. No disrespect, but the reference was mild, gentle almost, compared to the plethora of sexualised female imagery out there…. would be interesting to know what men generally thought about this. By the way I love fashion and creativity. This discussion is not a simple issue neither is it specifically about nudity or censorship. One can’t stop this, but its about open vigilance and awareness re the sexualising context and its effect. Recently this has been discussed in the media and in government.
    So if you post this stuff you need to be aware:
