    They're fantastically inventive, though my visceral reaction to their style is that they make everything look "mouldy". It's hard to explain, but there's an organic feel to their design, with all those round edges - but it's a feeling of organic breakdown, of things coming apart, of filaments of mould snaking their way through the objects, of edges decaying and curling up.

    So they're the people behind all of Inez and Vindoodh's really cool stuff. I always thought the photographers themselves did this.

    i ADORE their work in the balenciaga ads :wub:

    those might even be some of my favorite ads of all time...
    and i can't even pinpoint exactly why..
    i just think they're so great :heart:

    maybe it's the mix of fashion and art/design that i love?...

    also there is something eccentric about the ads
    like anne-catherine's brown top which turns into a horse
    sort of clever and amusing
    it's really perfect
    and then you notice it might go with the wolf on the other's sweater

    sort of like unlikely/strange juxtapositions
    the bird on the blond girl, resting on her shoulder
    such a weird partnership.. which makes it all the more interesting :blush:
