Annie Leibovitz’s hommage above to Belgian surrealist René Magritte will also be mentioned in the post “The Treachery of Images”.

Photographer Philip Toledano has created a baby suit, a dress made out of breasts among others. I suggest you check out his site, it is stunning.
Any clothes you’ve encountered please let me know , I’ll try and post them. As always the source/credit is a must. -L
