It seems that the new trend these days in the world of fashion is the fashion film. From lower-end retailers like Target, to revered brands like Chanel, fashion companies are taking advantage of the far-reaching dissemination the internet offers and producing creative video lookbooks that imaginatively showcase their latest collections. One of my favorite examples for the upcoming Spring 2010 season is the just-released Lily + Jae lookbook. Following the models on a dusty drive into the desert, the video lookbook captures the brand’s practical, prairie-perfect looks for spring. High waisted denim skirts and brightly printed dresses both feature classic A-line cuts that, when paired with cowboy boots, remind me of a hipped-up girl on the range. Beyond the clothing, what sticks out to me about the Lily + Jae Spring video lookbooks is the behind-the-scenes focus it provides. The designers offer up a glimpse into the entire creative process that goes into a photoshoot, from storyboarding to finding the perfect location. It takes a lot of hard work to produce a final product filled with glamour and high fashion, but Lily + Jae seem to have put in the time for Spring 2010, and I’m glad because we can look forward to some beautiful designs from them this Spring!
