    That Balenciaga blazer… I need it. I can’t complain about seeing more of Tao.

    Tao = Beautiful
    Naked girl = detracts from her beauty

    This editorial is trippy…everything looks warped. And I don’t get the naked girl.

    I don’t quite get the naked girl either, but she doesn’t hinder the photos, so it doesn’t bother me. I do love this editorial. The composition, the lighting and of course the clothes are perfect. Tao is beautiful too.

    it feels to me like they are portraying tao as some sort of arty visionary type, the naked girl maybe being her subject or muse? hm. i dig the wild clothes and pattern mixing – 2nd to last outfit is great.

    Great use of the geometrical patterns and the Missoni hat…but the makeup is just interestingly unappealing….

    Don’t get the naked girl…is this some attempt to jump on the whole ‘nudity’ bandwagon…?
    Was excited to see an editorial featuring floppy hats but in the end, left me disappointed…

    i love numéro china. the naked girl combined with the serenity of tao just makes the overall distortion so chilling, and yet i was never distracted from the clothes. this is the first time i felt more than passing interest in a lot of milanese s/s 11. those missoni hats are so cute, dramatic and versatile! props to everyone who worked on this editorial! :)
