Annabelle and André Strip Down


Laundry day just got a whole lot more interesting, thanks to Annabelle Dexter-Jones’ directorial debut.

In this short film, Dexter-Jones and on-and-off beau André Saraiva (a.k.a. graffiti star Mr. André) strip down to their skivvies in a New York Laundromat before hitting the streets of Manhattan—and one plush-looking mattress. While the video shares some whimsical DNA with New Wave films of the sixties (it was backed by Gallic go-to The Kooples), it’s 100 percent NYC in spirit. “I wanted to capture the spontaneity of New York City, but I also wanted to create something fun and cheeky,” Dexter-Jones told “It was the first time I directed anything, and it was a challenge to act, because the whole time I just wanted to be behind the camera. But I learned a lot, and I’m definitely going to continue to make more [videos].”
