In a bold redefinition of feminism, a French smart clothes manufacturer has declared that it's totally fine to put topless, objectified women in its ads as long as they're not retouched.Bafflingly called 'Essential' when they're surely anything but , the connected jeans act as wearable sat nav, vibrating to direct you to a destination set in the app.This follows on from similar services embedded in smartwatches, shoes and so on, so it's not a bad idea in itself - though it's a bit weird to have to wear your Internet Jeans when you need to go somewhere.The issue with the jeans isn't so much the pointless addition of connectivity if we berated every new product for that, we'd be here all century but the pictures the brand is using to promote the product, and their pitiful attempts to justify them when called out on Twitter.The women modelling the jeans are all the typical classically attractive specimens we've got used to seeing in every ad ever, but for some reason the company can't adequately explain, none of them have got tops on.Considering Spinali Design is expecting to sell this product to techy women - who already feel enormously alienated by the bro-heavy tech scene and its relentless culture of objectification - they really couldn't have gone about it worse.
