Lindsey Wixson in ‘You Make Me Feel Hyper Real’ by Pierre Debusschere for Dazed & Confused
Posted Sep 11, 2013
Carefree and conceptual Lindsey Wixson straddles two worlds in ‘You Make Me Feel Hyper Real’ by Pierre Debusschere for Dazed & Confused, October 2013. Taking us on a mind trip, Debusschere projects his exotic imagination on the page in this psychedelic series that feels like a dream inside a dream. Swimming in a sea of surrealism, he creates an altered-state of consciousness, by using mind-bending visuals to give the illusion of time suspension. Traveling through the astral-planes of the avant-garde Wixson changes sartorial form as she moves through a series of other-worldly scenes created by visionary Editor, Robbie Spencer. From cartoons to couture, he brings the fun back to high fashion with an eclectic mix of modern looks topped with a hit of kitch from Donald and Mickey. And with hot pink hair by Vi and multi-colored makeup by Adrien Pinault, I’d say Lindsey is the perfect picture to cover the Polychromatic Global Adventure Issue. By blurring the lines between fashion and fantasy this cutting-edge editorial uses color variegation and layered effects to create a kind of hyper-vivid virtual reality. Check out the accompanying film where Lindsey dances through the frames like a hippi fairy with 60’s inspired sayings drawn on her face. Source (visual optimism).
