Images from a dark fairy tale.

Always entertaining fashion blog, Tom and Lorenzo, posted Splash Calendar 2011 by Tejal Patni. The photographs are beautiful, odd, dark and somewhat reminiscent of artists, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison (previously).

Somehow this was very unsurprising to my eye, the logical extension of the current tall-black-shoes zeitgeist. I did like the picture for May with the model wearing stilts.

What I will find truly fresh and inspiring is when fashion emerges finally from the now decades-old heroin-chic skinny dark gaunt lanky obsession with old-school models of femininity and finds a way to do something warm, happy, and bright without it being an ironic nod to the sixties or seventies. I want to see people with normal weights wearing flat shoes and smiling, and have that somehow taken to the extreme of beauty by people who, no doubt, have a lot of talent and a good eye.

I feel something in the lighting set-up went horribly wrong. Everything is so bright, that it looks like you're looking at a stage with all the lights turned on; I feel like I can't take it seriously because the show hasn't started yet.

The cut-outs of wolves, bats, and pumpkins (were there pumpkins?) make the scenery seem like a haunted house for kids in grade school (nope, no pumpkins.).

Massive Attack Failure.
