Tim Walker, the man for dreams and escapism creates an imaginary Tim Burton-esque world for Vogue April 2008. Karen Elson, wearing our 'Arabella' glove impersonates Tchaikovsky's Clara and her journey to a magical land on Christmas Eve, when she is given a nutcracker who comes to life.
Everything is so dreamy in this editorial concept. The lighting, the textures, the colours, the ability for the foreign elements to appear natural within the settings and our 'Arabella'. Tim Walker's world is "a whim, an entertainment to provoke something in people, whether as escapism or relief."
Karen tells the Nutcracker she wishes the adventure would never end and he tells her it won’t for those who have an eye to see it - and as we like to say the adventure never ends for those who never take off their gloves.
