Thomas Couderc & Clément Vauchez

French illustration / graphic design duo Thomas Couderc & Clement Vauchez
combine stunningly posed blue tinted monochrome portraits with superimposed red animal silhouettes in this aptly named series Bêtes de Mode (Beasts of Fashion). The vibrant use of contrasting colours against a blanketing black background gives an almost 3D look as the figures seem to protrude from the frame. The synchronicity of the poses between human and animal create a fascinating and beautiful morph that begs the question, do we all have a "beast" within? If so, what beast are you?
