Headpiece by Will Cotton, based on Alexander McQueen
New York magazine’s spring fashion issue featured a cover and spread of Elle Fanning as Will Cotton’s latest muse, wearing designs from the spring runway accessorised with sweets and icing against candy land backgrounds that are blowups of Cotton’s paintings.
Cotton reworked the clothes into “something even more perfect for the environment”, adorning them with all kinds of dainty designs made from icing, and ‘Cottonised’ a brand new Reed Krakoff bag by shoving a couple of big squishy cakes into it!
