Stella McCartney's new fashion film transports us to a futuristic, American frontier
Warped wild west
If you were kinda creeped out while watching Stella McCartney's first fashion film Uncanny Valley directed by visual director Philippa Price (released last December), brace yourselves for another round of artsy, mind-blowing footage as you feast your eyes on the second instalment of the #StellaBy video series.
A few seconds into the latest short film Eclipse and it's evident that Price has lend her uncanny perspective of futuristic surrealism back to the desert setting—a similar location was used for the first film, but sans the dystopian elements. The cast is decked in Stella McCartney's latest men's and women's collections—both featuring British equestrian tailoring and reinterpreted print motifs by the 18th century painter George Stubbs. "I’ve always loved westerns and I’ve ridden horses my whole life. When I saw Stella’s show for this new collection in Paris I immediately imagined the outfits in a Western setting. Especially the horse prints," says Price.
If the non-linear, seven-part narrative has left you nonplussed, don't miss out on the more critical details, including men's Glen plaid jackets, a chic ensemble made of cropped denim jacket and high-waist jeans, and leopard-printed scarves:
