The abstract blooms in a surrealist’s dream

Mirroring the spirit of surrealism in creating a compelling series of images that push beyond the ordinary, An Le’s fashion editorial photographed for Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam feels like a visual feast, or more like art, illusion and modern sense made into a fascinating whole.

This underwater fantasy is one you’ll want to enter (NSFW)

“This world that we live in is full of enchantment for those with eyes to see it.” And after unhurriedly entering what is Beth Mitchell‘s extravagant underwater fantasy universe, the same can be said about her ethereal sets that appear to be describing a submerged wonderland, rather than a reality built just a few feet under the water’s surface. Dreamlike, conveying tales of love, enchantment…

Wolford fall collection: retro flair with an edge

Surrounded by an unexpected feel of surrealism, strongly grounded in the 1950s structural look that focused on delicate feminine silhouettes, and brought-up-to-date by the rough bondage elements, Wolford’s fall 2012 collection surprises with a modern rock-chick attitude. The Austrian brand took inspiration from the untamed work of Elsa Schiaparelli, and complemented their raw vision with powerful and tough accents spotted especially in the metallic beads…

Swans in swimwear: Louise Amstrup gets surreal

The way surrealism challenges our minds is part of what makes it so captivating. It may be an image, it’s foundation in reality, spliced together with another reality to create an uncanny and dreamlike situation. As you look through Louise Amstrup’s spring 2013 look book it’s the surreal prints that draw the eye repeatedly, aways challenging you to make sense of the picture. But in…

When I came to put my finger on it, it was indeed a surrealism: chignons and cameras obscuring faces makes for a Magritte-like anonymity.
