Once in a while an editorial comes along that takes your breath away. W's October issue featured just one of those "once in a whiles." Or perhaps I should say Once upon a time...
"Where Troubles Melt Like Lemon Drops" draws it's inspiration from a handful of fairytales, and it's color palette from ... are you ready? A Post-It. Yes, the sunny shade of the sticky, square notes was the catalyst for Tim Walker's honey hued dream sequence. But the idyllic image of this butter dipped thatched-roof house (which sent a location scout all the way to a tiny town in England to find) is offset by Karlie Kloss' nightmarish dark hair and makeup. The combined result reminds me of something another Tim would likely dream up, Tim Burton.
