Let’s spend a (worthy) word about – A LED dress for Little Boots

Scissors Closests and Streets is a blog about an alternative way to see and live Fashion. Part of Goosebumps Mag, SCS is a sort of a wishlist of things we love, and we think are special. It is the kind of lifestyle we want to have and we can actually be part of. It is affordable fashion, it is stylish bands with their catchy music, it is known and less known movies and the style we find in them, it is young and fresh designers/brands, it is love for (not so expensive) shoes. Being part of society, if not society itself, Fashion has different sides. We found our favourite and personal one, through which we look at the World. We will publish some specific pieces here, but for a more in-depth experience into our side of Fashion head to scissorsclosetsandstreets.wordpress.com.

Little Boots, Michelle Wu, The Creators Project and the fabulous LED dress.

The Creators Project never get it wrong! I really appreciate the way they look into Fashion and they celebrate it as a powerful form of art and communication, more than a simple way to “show up clothes” (see This Must Be The Only Fantasy). This time they documented the collaboration between Cyber Cinderella, electro-pop musician  Little Boots, and fashion designer Michelle Wu, who created for her a LED dress that reacts with the beats of her songs, while on tour.

Let’s spend a (worthy) word about – “This Must Be The Only Fantasy”

Fantastic Rodarte.

Despite what it may seems at first glance, this short movie is not some sort of deleted scene of Legend, nor Labirinth. It can’t even be an unseen scene of The Lord of the Rings…it is way too sparkly and “dreamy” in a wonderful 80s’ style to be Peter Jackson’s movie. Elijah Wood is in there though…

“This Must Be The Only Fantasy” actually is the latest, exciting collaboration between fashion house Rodarte, and filmmaker Todd Cole, produced by The Creators Project. Inspired by Rodarte’s Spring Summer 2013 collection, which explored the same topics as in the movie, this is an open tribute to 80s fantasy role-playing games, a 13 minutes video where fantasy becomes reality and vice versa.

I must say that I am an 80s Fantasy genre, movies in particular, devoted fan: all that glittery powder, over-sprayed, backcombed (and more glittered) hair, the fake contact lenses, the overdone make-up, the blurred images, the unicorns, the naughty and beautiful fairies, the extra ugly dwarves and extra evil villain, David Bowie in white lycra tights, Tom Cruise full of glitter (glitter is the key 🙂 )…the whole lot just amazes me!

It also happens that lately my interest in Rodarte’s collections is significantly increased, especially from the last two seasons. This is why I particularly appreciated this short movie, the third one of the interesting collection of videos that Todd has done in collaboration with Rodarte, all very successful (Aanteni, 2010, The Curve Of Forgotten Things, 2011, featuring Elle Fanning).
