High-end design house, Proenza Schouler recently produced a short film by Harmony Korine entitled Act Da Fool. that was produced and styled by Proenza Schouler. The film features clothes from Proenza Schouler's Fall/Winter 2010 collection.
Overall, I'm not sure how to feel about it. All I can say is it is interesting especially the juxtaposition of these delinquent black girls clad in thousands of dollars worth of designer clothes and drinking malt liquor. This same thing I find interesting is also facile and dare I say exploitative. On one hand it's cool to see the designer clothes on a segment often totally ignored by the designer fashion industry. On the other, I'm simply thinking, 'why' since the only black model on their Fall/Winter 2010 runway was Lais Ribeiro, a Brazilian model.
What do you think of the video?
