For his T campaigns, Alexander Wang tends to forgo the models for musicians. First there was Santigold and Spank Rock, then Die Antwoord, and now, for Fall, the foul-mouthed rap-and-pop darling of the moment, Azealia Banks. It’s not the first time the two have linked up. Banks was Wang’s date for the 2012 Met Gala, as well as providing the music for his Spring 2012 AW campaign with Liya Kibede. Why the move in front of the camera? “She exudes a certain rawness that makes her a very unique talent,” Wang says. “I loved working with her on this video for T Fall 2012, and think the collaboration captures a collision of energies.” Daniel Jackson directed the spot, which features Banks rapping “Van Vogue” from her recent EP 1991, with styling by Alastair McKimm. The video debuts exclusively here on Style.com.
