Mert and Marcus take over the September Issue of Vogue Italy with a surreal series of photos borne out of the beauty of being, in which otherwordly women inhabit the scene amongst the tulle and the colourful surroundings, transporting us from blues to oranges to fluorescent greens. All of the imagery created is based on the short extract written by Christophe Ono-Dit-Biot. The images are coupled with a film that grants a cinematic scale, thus giving the tale an edge. The story leads us to a ‘Fool’s Paradise’ and the visuals bring this ordeal to life as the women try their best to reach The Eye in the Sky.
