Lara Stone by Alasdair McLellan for V Magazine Fall 2014, ‘Dream Weaver’
Chloé Spring 2015 PFW
What could have turned out to be hippie-dippie-boho nonsense in other hands was a resounding success for Clare Waight Keller, the creative director of Chloé. There was something no-nonsense about the Spring collection: pretty yet precise, elegant but not excessive, practical rather than pouty. There were simply great silhouettes that spoke for themselves and concentrated on their proportions—styling was stripped-back, clean, chic, and worked to emphasize the quality of the collection, as did the spot-on casting of the models.
Watch Kindness’ Dapper Dance Battle in “This Is Not About Us” Video
On “This Is Not About Us,” the second track on Kindness’ collaboration-heavy new album, the Fall Fashion cover star sings about changing his mind about a flailing relationship before encouraging his lover to find somebody new. The official video for the song—co-directed by Daniel Brereton and Adam “Kindness” Bainbridge himself—moves away from the themes of love and loss, instead embracing its ’80s-indebted pop percussion with some synced dancing: foot-shuffling, finger-snapping, etc. The result is something of a lighthearted dance battle between Bainbridge and choreographer Karla Garcia.
