We applaud designers who put in the effort to make their lookbook a work of art, and extra-props if they can accomplish this without the finished product overtaking the clothes themselves. Berlin-based label Raphael Hauber released their Spring/Summer 2013 lookbook, and it's a rave-inspired collage scattered with neon palm trees, orcas and models perched on top of what looks like the Aggro Crag in creamsicle-toned makeup. All this action actually has the effect of making the clothes pop, with kaleidoscopic-patterned bomber jackets, tailored separates printed with parrots and flamingos and techy pieces meant for layering. Basically, it's not boring to look at, and that just makes us imagine how fun it would be to rock these pieces ourselves.
