    Love the colors on this one. So saturated.

  • foodycatAlicia

    Of all the tiny things to get upset by, I’m afraid the starry sky in bright saturated sunshine kills this for me. The rest is pretty. And pretty apt for a magazine called Plastik.

      You know what upsets me? The wasting of perfectly good ice-cream. 
      But I love this, cute dresses!

  • E. Sevilla

    that second picture is sooo unsettling.
    like the intro to an 80s horror movie, IDK

    • mjude

      agree, i got a horror movie vibe too.

  • RzYoung

    Like Hitchcock on acid

       And Pushing Daisies!

      • Tadiana

        Can I just say how much I miss that show?  I loved the fantasy and quirky humor.  It reminded me of like the French movie Amelie.

  • SewingSiren

    Is creamed ice the same thing as ice cream?

    • JosephLamour

      i think its like italian ice. whatever it is, its as weird as this editorial.

  • newleaf1

    So, do you think those blackbirds in the first shot were there, or were they photoshopped in?  Either way, nice add.

    • Kiltdntiltd

       I’d say photoshop.

      • NCDFan

        Along with the rainbow and the stars.

        • Kiltdntiltd

           Oh its entirely likely that the two models were simply taken outdoors, into bright sunlight and shot, then every other thing about the shoot was done digitally to one degree or another.

            Look at the one bird in the top right corner of the first picture.  There is no way that bird could be in front of the windmill blade.  Very sloppy.

    • l_c_ann

      But they got the sizes wrong.  To be that large and in back of a windmill, those blackbirds would be the size of vulchers. (Double shudder.)

  • Kiltdntiltd

    I love the colors, and the surrealism of the whole shoot. The clothes are fine, really, though nothing gasp worthy.  I suppose that’s my only real problem here.  For such a whack shoot idea, with such super saturated colors, I would have hoped for more intensely interesting, and unusual garments.

    • CallMeJane

       I agree, what a missed opportunity! They actually had an interesting idea and just blew it.

  • sweetlilvoice

    Funny, when I went to Brighton it was rainy and cold in July. I wish I could go to this Technicolor version instead…the colors are beautiful.

  • MoHub

    Tippi Hedren called. She’s glad to see the birds moved.

  • MilaXX

    eh’s the editorial is a bit been there, done that artsy shoot I’ve seen a zillion times before. I would like to get a better look at the last 2 dresses and those blue shoes.

  • CallMeJane

    That’s a whole lot of space devoted to four outfits. Why not more? That seems like an odd decision.

  • Judy_J

    Love the Kodachrome look of these photos.

  • Coralie Legister


  • kimmeister

    I love the print on the first dress.  The back of the sleeves on that green floral number are terrible.  It’s like, “hello, here are my armpits.”

  • Andrea Lane

    I totally want to see this Wes Anderson movie.

  • Pamela

    Kodachrome film died because it wasn’t in demand anymore but this type of photo is all the rage now.  WTF?  Sometimes I hate technology.

  • kingderella

    i like the clothes a lot, but this shoot isnt doing it for me.
    maybe its because the two models are only wearing two outfits each, but there are seven pictures, making the whole thing seem ‘watered down’. like an album with too many interludes.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    The Windmills of My Mind was a terrible song from the 1970’s.  But those shoes are just too wonderful.  I want them all.  ALL.

  • guest2visits

    Love that geometric print orange dress.  They appear to be waiting on the mother ship to take them back.

  • Cz

    Didn’t they do this on an America’s Next Top Model shoot? 

  • Terri Barger

    With the binoculars this so evokes Moonrise Kingdom.  Love the contrast of patterns with the saturated background.
