In a season filled with exuberant shapes and hues, why not have a little fun with fashion? Photographer Bobby Doherty took a witty, Dadaist approach to some of spring’s most memorable looks in his portfolio for our fashion issue, accessorizing a busy Prada print with an alarm clock and a multicolored Rosie Assoulin gown with a roll of Life Savers.
The images play on color — for example, a pair of bananas clad in one of the season’s biggest trends, monochromatic yellow — and on silhouette, in the form of bell sleeves with fruit shown for scale. And what could scream “spring” louder than a spray of tulips spilling out of a flower-bedecked Miu Miu dress? Now if only the weather would catch up.
