We think that sometimes this ongoing nudity in fashion trend has us turn a jaded eye towards every pictorial we see. It’s also not helped by the ongoing fetish fashion trend. The shoot Sart Sorbet features model Polina Barbasova playing amongst a festival of balloons (yes it’s the correct collective noun). Perfectly innocent.

Well… recently a friend recounted to me a message she received in which a man had requested photos of her with balloons. Needless to say she ignored the message, but apparently there’s a fetishist subculture even for that. Globophilia it’s known as.

Now we’re not saying that Elle’s Norway are promoting a pro balloon agenda, but we thought it would be a fun coincidence to point out. Check out all the photos from Sart Sorbet below.
