Tim Burton’s Magical FashionSeptember 29, 2009
I couldn’t resist posting the Tim Burton-inspired editorial from Harper’s Bazaar. Edward Scissorhands and Nightmare Before Christmas were two of my absolute favourite movies growing up, and I think a lot of the creepy stylization of his film worlds rubbed off on my personal aesthetic. Plus, I really enjoy wondering about what he and Helena Bonham Carter talk about over the breakfast table! Totally mundane things, or mental wanderings about other planes? I’d love to be a fly on that wall! (Also curious to see if their kids grow up equally eccentric, or if they rebel by becoming as straighlaced as possible.) Anyway, I found this editorial particularly enjoyable because it showcased a lot of the darker, more outré looks out there, and it pleases me to see how mainstream designers can incorporate oddity into their collection.
All designer information can be found on the Harper’s Bazaar website, from whence I nabbed the pics.
On my side, I should continue to be in this work hell (I left the office at 2:30 am last night. Yeah.) for the remainder of the week, and into the beginning of next week, and then I shall hopefully be given a reprieve and a return to NORMALCY. At which point I need to get frantic with the school applications so I’m not stuck being a 90-year-old paralegal. Chills. Horror. But yeah, I’ll probably be posting regularly sometime mid-next week. Until then, stay tuned for scattered updates like these!
