Prêt-à-Portend | Haute Macabre


From the “I don’t know what’s going on here, but I like it” files: all signs point to this being a recent photoshoot for Financial Times magazine, suggesting that the prognostic practices of astrology, palm-reading, and other forms of divination are on-trend in terms of sartorial inspiration for 2019 (and I don’t mean to brag, but of course you know I do, and you saw a very similar suggestion here, first!)

At any rate, in this “Your Future And How To Spend It” spread, I am presuming that the rune-faced seer symbolizes the Dow Jones Industrial Average and a key turning-point for the market, the tasseomancy tea leaf reader is predicting something dire regarding the EU financial crisis, and there’s a tin-foil hat prophet forecasting hostile takeover by our shadow spooder overlords. It could be, right? But I’m not about to ruin the fun I’m having with this gorgeously ridiculous editorial by Sandrine and Michael by actually learning something, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
