Synthenticism.

IMG_8156

I’m obsessed with this image of Kaia Gerber for LOVE magazine, have you seen it? I’m loving anything that plays with synthetic elements lately. Re-imagining a bubblegum pink roll of bubble wrap as a head shawl is like playing adult dress-up or make believe. There is something really beautiful about elevating everyday materials or objects into the world of high fashion or art. It’s even more awe-inspiring when paired with natural components as well. This juxtaposition of function, form and place gets me every time.

I actually had a fabulously fun experience collaborating on a shooting in this vein late last year.  I can’t wait to share the story!

What do you think? Are you a fan of this artsy plastic play?
