The Waist by Kristian and Marie Schuller

Inspired by 1930s Surrealism - specifically Jean Cocteau's Le Sang d'un Poete - photographer Kristian Schuller and filmmaker Marie Schuller provide the waist, or more poetically La Taille, of our Fashion Body. Quite classically, Schuller chose to cinch her waist with an archive piece by the world-renown couture corsetier Mr Pearl (this example originally worn on Antonio Berardi's S/S 1997 catwalk by Honor Fraser), alongside more unconventional pieces by Viktor & Rolf, Louis Vuitton and Gareth Pugh, in scenes reminiscent of Horst's Mainbocher Corset and even the disturbing, deconstructed dolls of Hans Bellmer. Few garments fashion the body quite as dramatically as these fine A/W 2010 examples.
