Pieces by Lanvin and Givenchy need not always be presented in a prim and proper fashion, for Supernatural by Mert & Marcus dresses up a line of lovely models with an air of majestic mysticism. Katie Grand and Panos Yiapanis have taken advantage of a collection of rather unusual props and accessories that turn couture looks into alternative ones.

Love Magazine #6 is enhanced with taxidermy crow hats, pointy zippered bonnets and burning candle crowns. Models Mariacarla Boscono, Lara Stone, Kristen McMenamy, Daphne Groeneveld and Nyasha Matonhodze are captured with compelling looks on their faces, revealing everything from sadness and madness to innocent sincerity. The luxury garments of Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel are as unique as the subjects' odd accessories, as Supernatural by Mert & Marcus delivers quite a paranormal palette for fashion expression.
