We usually don't shop catalogue, but we're sort of blown away by Urban Outfitter's spring preview. Natalie can't get over the hazy, retro vibe and Britt can't believe she wants to buy everything. We especially loved the Lux tartan bikini. It's so Dita, a red and blue plaid halter with a high waisted mini-skirt - perfect for the summer afternoons we plan on spending at Coney Island. We were anxiously clicking with our credit card in hand, when the sight of it on Urban's site immediately squashed our daydream. Is the photographer a magician? The catalogue picture's on the left, and the web image is on the right. We stared for a good five minutes before believing they were indeed one and the same. The man behind the dreamy paper image is Clarke Tolton, a New York based fashion photographer whose images are both haunting and sexy, thanks to a brilliant use of natural light. He's done amazing things with Urban's generally cheap clothes. Though we won't be buying the tartan bikini afterall, we will be watching for Tolton's name in our favorite fashion mags. We think he'd do a hell of a job with some of Chanel's hard-to-pull-off pieces from Resort.
