According to their about us, “SHOWstudio is an award-winning fashion website, founded and directed by Nick Knight, that has consistently pushed the boundaries of communicating fashion online.” As a general rule, I’m pretty jaded at this point. There are situations where sometimes someone I know will all excitedly tell someone else about something or other I attended or whatever and I just don’t get the titillation. I often wish I did, but I generally do not. So I am terribly pleased to have found the SHOWstudio site which, although putatively a fashion site, has managed to showcase an objet d’art which actually tripped my titillated surprise meter. The Urn Anal Dilation Diletto Kit by artist Betony Vernon is a butt-spreading kit which is pretty and something about its chi-chi presentation just really amuses me. Go figure. By the way, £6,950 is currently $8,926.
