Remember the tricky make-up in Bernhard Willhelm’s Fall 2012 collection? The painted faces and comics inspiration? As the clothes are never enough, and fashion photography is not enough, fashion seems to be interested in some old school techniques as the collage or fashion illustration. This editorial in the June issue of Dazed was inspired by the works of fashion illustrator René Gruau. Gruau’s influence on fashion imagery was overwhelming, but, to be fair, this kind of drawings look quite obsolete today. But not if you move them from the flat paper to the surface of the body, as they did for The Scanner Darkly editorial. The girls were literally transformed to look like rough drawings, with faces melting in the background.
