Now, designer giants Balenciaga have one-upped the high street chain in the kooky shoot stakes with this bonkers image of a model apparently being eaten alive by a sofa.

Check it out for yourself:

Along with the infamous stove shot, one image showed a woman kitted out in an orange trouser suit, levitating like a Marvel character next to a book shelf.

While a third depicts a model slumped forward on a sofa in what seems to be a version of yogi position Child's Pose.

Naturally, Twitter users wanted answers.

"What is zara playing at, why is sis standing on the stove? [sic]" asked one.

Zara's SS20 campaign pictured models in, erm, unusual poses (

Another bemused shopper commented: "Zara has the weirdesttt clothes website. Like why is sis moving like spider man. [sic]"

Balenciaga's latest image marks another shoot where the brief was something along the lines of "the floor is lava, but make it fashion."
