There is a sense of nostalgia throughout 'The Goldfish' photo spread that is made even more potent thanks to the dilapidated surroundings and carnival motif. Centered around the story of a rather sketchy man trying to gain the affections of a young woman by winning a goldfish, the shoot has a seedy quality that is exaggerated by the quiet and bleak setting as well as the man's dubious nature.

Photographed by Paolo Ventura, 'The Goldfish' editorial stars Lily Cole. Beautifully styled by Vibe Dabelsteen, who made Cole look like a blooming rose amidst a rotting bush filled with only thorns, the shoot is captivating. 'The Goldfish' is set to appear in Vs.
