Siff Pristed Nielsen's "The Greatest Show on Earth" lookbook embraces bizarre visual elements and eccentric fashions. The Denmark-based designer is known for her experimental aesthetic that was cultivated through a series of transformative textile studies.

Exploring the fields of both costume and fashion, the designer blurs the lines between theatrical and conceptual clothing. Siff Pristed Nielsen's strong interest in textiles and story-telling is brought to life in this cinematic catalog image series. The advertorial takes inspiration from the imaginative circuses and freakshows of the late 1800s with bizarre imagery that one has to see to believe.

Rejecting the ordinary, the designer's pieces vary from sculptural metal garments and voluminous feather pieces to doll-adorned cap accessories that are as cool as they are creepy.
