Shepard Fairey's Soviet propaganda-inspired campaign for Saks Fifth Avenue

Saks Fifth Avenue hired Shepard Fairey and Cleon Peterson to create some materials for them, and they came up with Soviet propaganda-inspired imagery. Eric Wilson for the NY Times has a good line: "If you are brave enough to buy a $2,000 Prada handbag, you might rationalize that you are helping to stimulate the economy."


*Previously: Russian troops wore Adidas sneakers in Afghanistan.

*Buy Shepard Fairey posters at eBay.
