The spelling makes it even lamer than the other. They couldn't have thought of a better "pun"?

The problem is that they rely too much on shock! and puns, so they probably ran out of ideas. Cause you know, good designers can't just let the clothes speak for themselves.

Sisley: The Ads online are fake
Let us be perfectly clear: Sisley had nothing to do with the "shocking" online ad campaign that we have reported on in recent days. The images of poor taste that have been circulating on the web and passed off as extracted images from an upcoming fall ad campaign for the brand, which is part of Gruppo Benetton, are completely fabricated. This raises some serious and disturbing questions: it is still unclear who was behind the circulation of these offensive and misleading images and what reasons he or she had for doing it.

...Isn't "shocking" kind of what Sisley ads are all about..? Or is that just the ones I've seen? They're probably bummed they didn't come up with it!

^ Doubt it, I know they push the limits with the Sisley ads but I don't think they'd get away with that one.

I must say I almost agree. I usually love Sisley ads, particularly the older ones, but they just get more and more gimmicky each season. The current ones seem to be almost self-deprecating because of how exaggerated they are, particularly the model's totally vacant, dead facial expression, and that image in and of itself really caught my eye and I quite enjoyed it. BUT THEN THEY HAD TO GO TOTALLY DESTROY IT. The whole "junkie" bit feels like a superfluous punch line here, and the heroin/fashioin connection seemed to just reinforce that redundancy ("and oh, by the way guys, here at Sisley we're making this REALLY GREAT reference to coke and heroin in our ads, in case you didn't notice the first time, isn't it great aren't we genius?"), and then they had to throw in the credit card and what looks like coke in it too. That sent the whole thing into "HI WE'RE NOT DESPERATE OR ANYTHING BUT LOOK! BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER! COKE! AREN'T WE SO SHOCKING? BUY OUR CRAP!" territory. And it makes me sad.

Gratuity can be done so well. It really can. And Terry and Co. seem to have lost touch of where the humour within their excess lies. Way to waste Lara, seriously.

as if this hasn't been done with other drugs (like alcohol, tobacco, even SSRIs) for ages. but anyway, how smart to people have to be to realize those coke ads were fake? I mean, don't you think Sisley would know how to spell "fashion"?

Well said. I knew that they were fake already. Sisley does provocative and offensive, but they don't do stupid.
