A LARRY CLARK PROJECT / PARIS SESSION EDITORIAL

l1

INVITING A YOUTHFUL CAST OF SKATERS AND DIOR HOMME MODELS INTO CLARK’S GRITTY, URBAN WORLD, A LARRY CLARK PROJECT / PARIS SESSION CAPTURES A HIGH CONTRAST SNAPSHOT OF PARISIAN GRANDEUR AND THE COMMUNITY OF SKATERS WHO PRACTICE ON AND AROUND ITS COLOSSAL MONUMENTS. THE FILM INVOKES THE FEELING OF ABANDON AND YOUTHFUL REBELLION SEEN IN HIS 2014 MASTERPIECE THE SMELL OF US – A CLEAR POINT OF REFERENCE FOR THIS FIRST DIRECTORIAL COLLABORATION WITH DIOR HOMME. SHOT AROUND THE ART DECO RAMPARTS OF PARIS MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, THE CITY SIDEWALKS, AND THE SEINE, THE FILM CELEBRATES A UNIQUE CLASH OF THE BRUTALIST AND THE TRADITIONALIST, FROM ITS CONTRASTING ENVIRONMENTS, INDUSTRIAL SOUNDTRACK, AND THE UNSTUDIED MIX OF DIOR HOMME SNEAKERS AND THE SPRING 2017 COLLECTION WITH EACH SKATER’S OWN AUTHENTIC UNIFORM. CLARK’S RAPID-FIRE SEQUENCES AND BOLD EDITING STYLE FRAME THE COLLECTION WITH THE SAME SENSE OF COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS AND VIBRANT ENERGY AS THE RUNWAY SHOW, FURTHER SUBVERTING THE FORMAL CODES OF THE HOUSE.
