Love magazine’s August issue featured an editorial titled “What Lies Beneath.” In addition to the editorial in print, a trailer was released, directed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.
“What Lies Beneath” is almost unbearably rife with visually stunning shots alluding to the myth of Leda and the Swan, Millais’ painting Ophelia, and a dash of salacious horror movie gore. Add to that a flawless set design, an atmospheric and eerie backing track, and models that embody an otherworldly beauty (including the likes of Lara Stone, Mariacarla Boscono, and Xiao Wen Ju) and I’m completely sucked into the dark disjointed narrative that Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott have wrought for the viewer.
