Sex sells, but French fashion chain La Redoute’s laissez-faire attitude to nudity is a little de trop even for Gallic tastes. The retailer’s website shocked visitors with an image of a naked man frolicking in the sea in the background of a children’s clothing shoot. The picture shows four adorable Redoute-clad children lined up on the sand, smiling at the camera and seemingly unaware of the naturist behind them. As reported in U.K. magazine The Stylist, La Redoute is embarrassed about the mistake. The company has removed the photograph from its website, apologized on Facebook and Twitter, and promised to be more careful in the future.

    • Hi Recca,

      So true indeed. Great point you mention. I bet they felt the heat for this blogging blunder. I believe it started as a photo shoot. Even worse though they actually published it.
