    Craig & Karl: Zhao Wan Qiu in McQueen + MCM (detail)

Illustration: Tremendous fashion images by the indomitable Craig & Karl

Posted by Rob Alderson,

The fashion world is most closely associated with photography, but we are particular suckers for illustrators bringing their talents to bear on the sartorial sphere. Ever-impressive duo Craig & Karl have just proved exactly why we like this kind of thing so much with their new images for Modern Weekly China. While a lens can capture the clothes and the model with unerring accuracy, illustrators can capture something of the spirit, the intangible associations that sometimes (but by no means always) prove beyond the photographer. Splendid stuff chaps.
