“2024 Spring - Summer Women’s Collection ‘Deep Mist’,” reads the caption of the pictures shared on Instagram by fashion brand Undercover. The pictures show several models walking the ramp in terrarium dresses.

Take a look at the pictures shared by Undercover below:

The pictures were shared a day ago on Instagram. They have so far accumulated over 21,600 likes. Many even took to the comments section of the post to share their thoughts. While some liked the collection, others slammed the fashion brand and termed their collection ‘stupid and archaic’.

Here’s how people reacted to these pictures:

“GROSS! Live Butterflies in 2023? They would have been dead long before you attempted to ‘release them’ after. No one thought of a better idea within the company to go viral? A basic Beehive outfit with live bees promoting ‘save the bees’ would give you the same ‘shock’ factor you are looking for!” posted an individual.

Another added, “Really disgusting that you used live animals. So tone deaf.”

“This is art. Shaping the future of fashion!” expressed a third.

A fourth commented, “This is so stupid and archaic, animals are not objects. Get better!”

“This is so incredible! Inspiring work,” remarked a fifth.

A sixth shared, “Dreamy,” while a seventh simply wrote, “Magic.”
