      Call me crazy, but when I think of surrealist garments, I think of our goddess Schiaparelli, praise her light, not this… stuff. A spatula strapped to a hat does not a surrealist chapeau make.

        I love this comment so much I want to take it out behind the middle school and get it pregnant.

           I keep seeing that poor model’s thighs and I just want to feed her a giant steak and some potatoes...FoxGetPositionWork.blogspot.com

           Hey, I like your name.

      • http://twitter.com/SparklyCasanova UglyCasanova

        I love you for this.

      • MilaXX

         Agreed, I’ll take her whimsy over this. This almost reminds me of student work. I could easily see April making this collection.

         So right you are! This looks a bit like little girls playing dress up with their avant-gardist aunt’s wardrobe in an abandoned building.

        Great comment.

    • MilaXX

      Eh, I’ll take the men in turbans as my pretty for the day.

        I’m with you, Mila!

      I can’t focus on the clothes because I keep seeing that poor model’s thighs and I just want to feed her a giant steak and some potatoes.

      Are those belt inspired hats or belts worn as hats?

      • gabbilevy

        Both? Either?

        I was wondering exactly the same thing… :|

    • AudreysMom

      rarely have lacey black gloves been put to such interesting use.

    • boweryboy

      I’m not seeing the surrealist reference.

    • Saucysusan

      I think the stylist &/or editor needs to look at what defines surrealism because this is not it.  

    • Lina_bee

      So…a teenager standing against a decaying wall is supposed to represent a surrealist workshop? Whatever. The hair is fun. The gloves are completely distracting. The hats are a trip. The shot with the peach and black is nicely composed…but there’s no story here.

    • Introspective

      Man are the stoneys bitter tonite!! But seriously despite all the self-conscious “artsyness” of these shots theres nothing to see here. So i get all the vitriol. Actually I share it.

    • quiltrx

      I love black with candy colors, but I think only that girl from PR who kept using ‘surreal’ in the wrong context would call this surreal.

    • guest2visits

      I appreciate the efforts of the model to rock this line. Which still doesn’t keep the editorial from looking completely silly.
      More granny panties, ridiculous sandals.  The model does make giant belts as hats look pretty good though.

    • Liverpoolgirl

      For a second there I thought she had two arms coming out of the blue sleeve.

      • norseofcourse

        Which actually would be kinda surreal.

      How odd to style such heavy, wintery garments for the top and sandals at the bottom. But odd is not the same as surrealist.

    • plinkiedoodle

      It looks like they’re taken with Instagram…

      • holdmewhileimnaked

        that’s the idea.

    • snarkykitten

      Not sure how this is surreal…bored models, posing in front of a nondescript wall? really?

    • http://twitter.com/UtterlyCreative Utterly Creative

      Pastels overload. What is surrealist about this? Except the hats. But I’ve seen stranger things in Ascot. 

    • Beardslee

      It is a pet peeve of mine when people throw are around powerful words with specific meanings without doing their homework about what they mean.  Surrealist?  Huh?  
      Having said that, some of the clothes are nice and the braids remind me of Pippi Longstocking.

    • Linderella

      LOVE.
      Still doesn’t make it surrealism, but…

      I like the belt-hats, but all the lace stuff looks like it came straight from american apparel. 

    • jeeves22

      These make me want an ice cream for some reason.

      Pretty clothes, nice shoot.

    • http://www.facebook.com/kacee.garner Kacee Hiatt Garner

      Love the colors but the penultimate hat reminds me of a charcoal chimney for campfire cooking. 

    • mjude

      LOVE

    • marilyn

      Is this what happens to the extra costumes from Cirque de Soeleil?  Is this what happens to the extra backgrounds for the set?  There are no clothes here to wear.  Only costumes.  yuck.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Hate those stretchy, cheap looking black lace gloves. Student project surrealism.

    • Msfabulousnyc

      I agree with AW on Schiaparelli coming to mind when it comes to Surrealist fashion, or perhaps Dali’s jeweled lips brooch.  The sorbet colors of the collection are still very pretty though.
