Peter Jensen’s Hollywood Moment
Danish designer Peter Jensen often looks to Hollywood, whether in the form of Shelley Duvall (the unlikely muse of his Spring 2011 collection) or nouvelle vague heroine Anna Karina (the divining spirit behind his Fall offering). So maybe it’s only a matter of time before Jensen actually got to the city in question. That’s where he went for his new lookbook. Instead of shooting models swanning against white walls, he imagined them as actors in a film; the final lookbook is a caught-on-location glimpse at that unmade flick. Doing the shooting honors is L.A.-based photographer and videographer Autumn de Wilde, who has an impressive resume in Tinseltown and elsewhere. In addition to shooting fashion editorials, entertainment features, and more than a few album covers (including ones for Beck, Elliott Smith, and the White Stripes), she’s lensed music videos for Spoon and Jenny Lewis. Who, come to think of it, would look pretty great in Jensen’s cutesy-cool wares.
