leave a comment »

last month i wrote about my very talented and busy friend alia raza, who had just directed a music video for the band known as violens. i still think that is one of the best names ever.
well, perhaps because we’ve known each other for 25 years, she has kindly worked some of my duskin pieces into her newest music video project for the song “invisible sunday,” by alexandra hope, an artist on the label manimal vinyl. these are stills pulled from the shoot, and they are

just.

so.

amazing.

the video and album of the same name will debut in february, so please check back, as i’ll be posting it here.

jane- thank you so much for sending me this video. it’s gorgeous and incredibly inspiring. first aid kit, from sweden, covering a fleet foxes song (a band that i am going to look up next). these girls are sisters. can you believe they are only 15 and 17? and why wasn’t i born with this talent?

presenting the french kicks, my second favorite dc prep-school boy-band. 

sex tourist is terribly sexy.
