Dissonance Prop Editorial


21-year-old Karen van Binsbergen styled and directed Dissonance, “a contrast between classical/chic and raw/dirty elements,” says the stylist and now fashion intern at Elle Netherlands. “A real mismatch.” Pale pastel backdrops set the stage for a woman making an ashtray out of a fried egg, and an outfit of cycling shorts, Nike socks and stilettos—a getup that would make you crinkle your nose if you saw it on the street. Like the fashion, everything else is ironic. Even the use of mirrors seems to nod to the tawdry display of one’s “refinements” on social media.
