The premiere of Blonde Redhead’s ‘Dripping’, which was directed by Gene Doe, aired last week as the main single from their new album ‘Barragán’. Both of which are out now now now. The video is released in collaboration with All Saints, working to capture the moods and atmosphere of both the brand and band. And succeeded to capture may I add…
The video is less like a fashion advert and more like a film you’d watch at some dingy cinema situated on a back street, but in a really magically great way. The clothes are almost anonymous behind the fog and guitars of Blonde Redhead. It’s so simple yet speaks loudly about what kind of establishment All Saints is. It reinforces how the company stands as innovative fashion house with an independent spirit.
The band and brand were both born in 1994 and I’m sure both would agree of how the relationship between musicians and fashion houses and designers has changed since their creation. Now, musicians are not just supported by various designers, but in some cases collaborations can amplify artists into the music stratosphere. Breaking through some sort of barrier that is ‘making it’.
Some designers have worked introducing bands, using their songs on catwalk shows, having musicians play at events, any opportunity to make the bridge between the two arts stronger. And that’s a bridge that we at Spindle wholeheartedly support, just imagine us in hardhats making this bridge higher, wider and sturdier.
