Though apparently there has been a lot written about this video and the model featured, I must have missed out on that coverage completely. A screen shot from the video served as my computer’s wallpaper for ages, but I never knew about its origins until now.

Created by burgeoning photographer/filmmaker Matt Sundin, it features the striking featured, up and coming model Camille Mervin Leroy, who has posed for Rad Hourani and Jean Paul Gaultier.

Just don’t call her Alice Gibb.

The film’s flickery, atmospheric dream-like quality is right up my alley! The light leaks/flashes are somewhat reminiscent of Mark Borthwick‘s work. I’m not completely sure based on varying reports, but it might have been made in conjunction with Rad Hourani as a project?

It would be hard-pressed for Jun Takahashi produce anything less than thrilling. I especially loved the presentation of Undercover’s fall/winter ’09 collection- the pieces of shattered mirror on the ground are a great mystical touch, without being obvious and melodramatic, in the way that mirrors are often conceptually presented.

It reminded me of Emma Cook’s fall 2006 collection, which incorporated plenty of mirrored appliques.

My own prom dress came from this collection. The amount of attention paid to detail is one of the reasons why I love Emma Cook so very much.

POP Fall 2007.

I’m enjoying the mood this story conveys, as well as its use of color..faded and decayed yet highly saturated and vibrant.

I was extremely psyched to see this feature on my dear friend Dylan posted on COACD today.

They weren’t exaggerating!

Peep the sick backpack he made that prompted me to go on a long hunt for a similar one.
