Clones

In the 10 minute walk between Oxford Street Station and Bond Street Station, you will pass three Zara clothing stores.

Terrifying.

Far more terrifying still:

Identical mannequins. The high-fashion ideal woman, no? Standardized in her slim form, perfect skin, perfect makeup, perfect hair (in a form possible only on a mannequin or briefly on a runway). Identical except in her outfit, it is only her clothes that set her apart (the presence or absence of accessories, the amount of leg she is willing to show). But of course even these differences must fit within the season and the latest style.

The most terrifying thing of all? That this should inspire anyone to buy these clothes.
