how cool making a fashion movie is? i wonder from time to time, like now while i play with the bubbles in my coffee. through this column i started developing a particular interest in fashion videos & movies without even knowing it, and especially in the executive-slash-creative-slash-i’m a control freak like that part of it.
for this session, my lovely children, things are more mixed up musically & more bizzare [and perhaps nonchalant] visually. currently going through the phase of contradictions: the more delicate the collection, the more badass the music. the simpler the collection, the more bizzare the concept. get it? so let’s get down to bussiness.

_walter pfeiffer fashion film: ahh, god only knows how attached i am to london. but that wasn’t the only reason ι loved Walter Pfeiffer’s & Robbie Spencer’s fashion film. the debate of east london: “east london is dead if you believe it’s dead” according to Josh Quinton, one of the creative protagonists of the film. and exactly that is being showcased through the “allegro” soundtrack and the “staccato” scenes.
