Fashion, they say, is all about fantasy -- and some fantasy comes with the flip of the coin. There's the danger, the desire and the desire of danger. The shifty eyes, smoke-filled rooms and shadows here work to set a dark mood. Even if that mood isn't the traditional way advertisers and marketers work to sell products, there's just something about it that works. Mystery delights the eyes? Or the credit card.
