Prince and Victoria Secret

Let me be the first and unapologetic one to ask the question:

With all the lovely photos of Prince in his underwear, How come Prince never collaborated a deal with Victoria Secret underwear?
I'm sure he and Victoria Secret would have came up with some perfect choices for men underwear!

Because by the time Victoria's Secret even existed, Prince had put his clothes back on.

Also, Victoria's Secret sells women's lingerie.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Victoria's Secret has existed since 1977, don't know when exactly it got so big, though.

But yeah probably because they only sell to women. And it's awful. And I think only exists in malls...

It was several years later - which is why I said Prince had already put his clothes back on.

Like, the 80s? They were apparently in 400 malls by 1988.

Though I guess he'd stopped rocking the G string by then.

Prince wasn't huge on those kinds of branded products, huh? Other than the perfume did he really do anything else like that?

Prince was giving Victoria's Secret as gifts to Sheila and Cat (see also the famous story where he told his assistant to get Boni Boyer a $500 gift instead).
That would be late 1980s
They were in our mall at that time -- small Utah town of 70,000.

There ya go.

Maybe Prince never wanted to be that kind of commercial artist. Also, while not probable, maybe he learned from the debacle around Michael Jackson creating shoes for LA Gear (or whoever) and how it crashed so magnificently.

He seemed to keep to the perfume game at most.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Besides that, it's too late when they have already turned Purple Rain into something commercial!

Hollywood wants so badly to fight for equality right????
Didn't the symbol mean the joining of man and woman symbols????
Who said Victoria Secret underwear could be limited to just woman's wear!!!
It would be an amazing idea if they also designed men's underwear as well!! Don't you think????
Or you don't think because you aren't creative enough to know what I'm talking about!
And lastly, nothing is wrong with me!
Oh wait
I don't need to impress anyone so I'm going to say this!
I turned from Nice to BITCH with no fuck given! Learn to deal with it!

Victoria's Secret did, darlin'. If you wanna change Victoria's Secret into Victor's Marble Hammocks - you can contact them here.

PS Refugees are being sold i...now, today. You might wanna refocus all that pent up NRG you got into something better than fighting over bikinis and fuzzy slippers.

You thought you were really making a point here????
You sound as ignorant and racist as your post!
Why did this post bother you!
It was meant to be a positive statement and because you are extremely negative you turned it into a negative one.

Kind of the point of Victoria's Secret is having a place where women can buy their underwear among women. Designing for men (and thus having to share that shopping experience with them) would pretty much ruin that whole vibe. They hire men, but rarely to work the floor. You can shop for your lingerie without the male gaze.

Though, fun fact, it originally existed as a place for men to buy underwear FOR the women in their lives, displayed all nice and matching. I did not do well.

I wanted to be a Victoria's Secret model but I'm way too short. I stomp the pathways of my house to Prince's music instead.

I don't remember that but that's a cool story. I don't think they let musician perform back then but they could have.
Also, Prince was also big on going to fashion show I remember! If you are a fashionista, any fashion shows would be must see!
