If Valentine’s Day sounds to you like an occasion for a good old-fashioned barn-raising, you’re in luck. The newly launched fashion and culture site The Aesthete is celebrating the holiday without the usual hearts and chocolates. Its new video, “Modern,” directed by and starring Jon Beasley and Isabelle Albuquerque of Osk Studio, looks at love through a primly puritan lens. Beasley and Albuquerque play an early-American couple who journey magically from their rural home to modern New York City, dressed simply and severely in ascetic garb—if clothes by YSL, Gucci, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Ralph Lauren, styled by Natasha Royt, can be called ascetic. The full film, with cinematography by Sundance award winner Bradford Young and an original score by Hecuba, premieres today on TheAesthete.com; an exclusive preview is below. Call it kismet, but settler style feels especially timely after Marc Jacobs debuted pilgrim buckle shoes on his runway last night. Is what’s old set to be new again? Hang on to your bonnets.
