McQueen Film For Selfridges The Film Project Plus Michael Pitt Film With Jamie Bochert

  • Pin it

The majestic couture of Alexander McQueen’s designs makes the object of a new short film. The Film Project is a Selfridges initiative, started by the notorious British department store to mark the opening of their Women’s Designer Galleries which, if you hurry, is open for another 3 days, until March 25th at the Old Selfridges Hotel.

For the special occasion, a handful of notorious designers have been highlighted in a couple of short artsy videos, among which, the Alexander McQueen one stands tall and proud, telling the seams story. Indeed, of the few films I watched on Selfridges’s website, Dustin Lynn’s three minutes Obscure Desires film about Alexander McQueen is by far the most couture – appropriate.

A special mention for Michael Pitt’s short film with girlfriend Jamie Bochert for Ann Demeulemeester – dreamy – reminded me of one of Madonna’s videos. Hit the jump to see for yourself! (thank you, Ellington, for suggesting this beautiful story!)

You are welcome Kpriss!
I do miss Selfridges they are a great store as they are very much interested in the arts and promoting them along with fashion!
I think this project is way nifty!

Ah, that was a great view girls. So thank you both.
Indeed the McQueen film is breathtaking beautiful and very fashion appropriate. I’m sure this one is going to be re-watch here.
I like Michael’s and Jamie’s too in a different way. And yes, Madonna’s Frozen video comes to the mind.

Before being hit by the consumerism madness, fashion was art in one of its purest forms. We’re lucky some designers still have that in their blood and don’t necessarily aim the bank account.

You’re right. Nifty it is! and thanks again! :*

just a quick question – there was this short film about Gareth Pugh – that was Gareth, dancing in the video, wasn’t it? It was like Angels in America had a baby with All that Jazz.

Yes, it was a form of art before label mania….:((
