Saw this and thought it was absolutely brilliant and well edited. This is a tried and tested team with Quinten Jones, who shot Man-Like-Me “London Town Remix” video and Pete Duffy of Man-Like-Me sorting the sound design. The costumes and animation is fucking next hype and Emma Chadwick the dancer delivers hard as a motherfucker. Would love to do something like this someday. I still think labels are bullshit and vogue is for insecure fashion whores, but this video is ILL – not sick.

I personally wouldn’t wear these shoes or even be associated with anyone who wore these shoes. Or even be in the same room with anyone wearing these shoes. However I do think if you’re gonna sell shoes work within the confides of what will showcase them well. Commercial companies given this pitch would probably go the (hate to say the word-it makes me so angry) “urban” route. Maybe they would hire a breakdancer or an icon like Jay-Z or 50 cent or even Kanye West. But if you’re gonna sell shoes and lets be honest it’s just a fucking glorified plimsole. This is good way to do it.
