POP X SUKI
An eccentric Asian director is in charge of a fashion shoot where he forces his strange ideas of branding on a couple of designers (Suki and Poppy). From Crisps inside an Aquarium to references of modern day rappers – there is a perceptive use of word combinations all in the spirit of the 1960's.
The video/short film is a clever interpretation of a 'behind the scenes' photo-shoot of a fashion brand. Based on a true experience by Suki Waterhouse and Poppy Jamie, which play themselves. The video was shot on 16mm film in L.A. Produced by Moonduckling.
