You may be aware that we’re not exactly experts when it comes to fashion. High-end clothing to us is like fine jewellery to a child, we want to reach out and touch its shiny surfaces but would have literally no idea what to do with it were we suddenly gifted a couture wardrobe. Still, we know what we like, and what we like tends to be mad as a bag of bats – and that’s as mad as it gets.
So if, like us, it’s the bizarre end of fashion that really floats your boat, then here’s your new favourite collection; Bernhard Willhelm’s Women’s SS 2013 as directed by Geoffrey Lillemon. The clothes themselves are extraordinary enough, but Geoffrey’s visual treatment of the photographs – chromed banshees cavorting across lurid sets – takes the whole collection firmly into the land of the surreal. We still wouldn’t have a clue how to wear it, but god damn we love how it looks!
