Watch it Wednesday: Fashion Plus Geekery in Moving Picture!
“Iron” by Woodkid
An epic WiW post, to help you get through the longest hump day of the year!
Featuring supermodel Agyness Deyne, this video looks like Karl Lagerfeld and/or Steven Klein shooting an editorial for Vogue inspired by The Guild, or Warcraft. It’s a sexy, stylized representation of the struggles befallen a band of MMORPG characters; and a stunningly realized work of art. A reason to watch music videos again.
Bonus: Iron has been embraced by both the fashion and geek worlds: The song itself was used for both the Dior Homme F/w 12-13 show, entitled “A Soldier on My Own”—A direct line from the song— AND the trailers for Assassins Creed Revelations. In fact, here’s some bonus videos! See for yourself:
(feel free to jump to the beautiful finale of Dior Homme at 8:29)
Seriously, how EPIC is this song?! This post?!
