To celebrate London Fashion Week's 25th anniversary, Temperley London has released a video accompaniment to its circus-themed spring 2010 collection. The film puts models wearing the collection into an old-timey zoetrope, where they crack whips and glide on swings as unsettling jazz plays in the background. The idea isn't wildly fresh—people have been exploring the appealingly creepy aesthetic of the circus for years—but the video, much like the collection itself, is beautifully made. To see exactly how they put it together, check out the "making-of" film on Temperley's website.
