The Amsterdam Chainsaw Massacre

A couple of days ago the cover of Dazed and Confused's February issue hit the internet showing model Magdalena Frackowiak wearing one of Viktor & Rolf's Spring/ Summer 2010 pieces. To be honest, I wasn't that big of a fan of the show when I first saw it, I tend to focus my love more on things you can actually wear, but after seeing this spread I've changed my mind. Though I'd still never wear these, I love the way that the photos are so simple because you don't need anything other than dress. The dress alone stands as a work of art, and if it did have more than a white background it would be too much. The spread is called "The Amsterdam Chainsaw Massacre," with photography by Josh Olins, and bears the tag line "In a season when fashion houses are playing it safe, maverick designers Viktor & Rolf took on the credit crunch with their thrillingly impractical mutilation of tulle." The images are beautiful, and I thought I'd share them with you guys, maybe not as a source to pick your next outfit from, but definitely a source of inspiration!
