Agathe's House - Pure and Innocent

We've seen the dollhouse inspiration of our title expressed throughout this two-day shoot, but perhaps less immediately evident has been the influence of cult eighties film Café Flesh, another key reference for this collaboration between Nick Knight and Dinos Chapman's. To underline that source, however, we have drafted in glamour model Dani Thompson to give a sexy slant to the 'twisted childhood' concept of the developing editorial. Here, Dani models vintage lingerie, a custom 'rat mask' by Gary Card, and towering Mugler heels that owe more than a passing nod to the wares of Fredricks of Hollywood ('Alien Hookers' was a phrase I tossed out after the show). A sweet contrast to Dani's sexy, Lily Donaldson epitomises innocence in a broiderie anglaise dress from Rodarte, pointy-point Manolo Blahnik slippers, and sweet clip-on bow and Peter-Pan collar combo. Although that bow is latex, and the collar's a Vuitton leather number. Maybe not so innocent after all...
