It is easy to wonder why there aren't more online-exclusive fashion editorials like the V Magazine 'Overworld' one while browsing through it. An amazing series of animated gifs, it not only incorporates Super Mario-inspired backdrops in each still, the model Vanusa Savaris has a fun time interacting with each scene as well. For instance, she repeatedly punches the classic coin box and jumps to avoid getting knocked over by a red Koopa Troopa.

Conceived and shot by talented photography and animation duo Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader of Reed + Rader, the V Magazine Overworld online editorial is playfully retro. Eclectically and eccentrically styled by Aki Maesato, it features designs from Balenciaga, Thom Browne and Sonia Rykiel. Stats for Gamer Fashion Animations Trending: Older & Warm
