The Music-Video Underpinnings of the Next SFK Collection

BY tamar anitai 02/20/2012

 
Sarah’s fave look in the M.I.A. video “Bad Girls.”
 
Sarah Frances Kuhn’s fall 2012 collection is inspired by some of the most iconic women in music who’ve made some of  the most striking videos—yes, it’s that major. And this Brooklyn designer is in a position to judge: When she’s not buried in leather and chain making camera straps, she’s running around to band practice for her two projects, Open Ocean [Ed: We wrote about that one!] and Rockit From a Drone. Here, the videos that she thinks warrant SFK translation. 


 
The Video

“Valse de Melody” by Serge Gainsbourg featuring Jane Birkin:

"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

The Video

“Wuthering Heights” by Kate Bush: “Kate Bush is a fiery vision of romance in this dream-like video. Makes me want to head to a field and dance around!”

The Video

“Fire” by Lizzy Mercier Descloux: “This French avant-disco pop star from the late seventies/early eighties is in a class of her own in her TV performance of the super-catchy song. I love the black-and-white number that she accompanies with the best hair flips I have witnessed in a while…or ever?”

The Video

“Bad Girls” by M.I.A.: “This song recently came out, and I can’t stop listening or watching. She has both a unique style and sound—a mix of desert chic, rave, and diva but still sophisticated all the way. I particularly love her outfit 40-something seconds in.”

The Video

“Hey! Bo Diddley” by Bo Diddley featuring Norma-Jean Wofford: “The Duchess is the epitome of cool in her long, shimmery, body-con dress. Not only does she rock on guitar, she knows how to move!”
