There’s magic where illustration and real life collide: you can only imagine some God-like hand overshadowing the page with a giant pencil, the master’s tool with which creation begins. Only, when the cartoonist interacts with the real world, it’s the kind of magic that existed in Who Framed Roger Rabit. The architect of this hybrid world can do things we can’t. They can mess with our reality, limited only by imagination.
The look book for Beliv’s Lapin d’ete collection is a little like that. Is the model being half erased and re-drawn into Wonderland? Or do her clothes start out as illustrations before she magically becomes human? Either way, it makes for an interesting way to present a look book.
With puffed-sleeves and apron-like layered full skirts, there’s certainly more that’s Alice inspired than just the illustrations. You can view the full look book at the gallery.
