Inspired by the downtown cool, rock sensibility and international lifestyle embodied by model Abbey Lee Kershaw, this debut short film introducing the Pierre Balmain collection follows Abbey Lee and her band, Our Mountain, throughout New York City. Directed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, this film features pieces from the Pierre Balmain women’s and men’s collection worn by Abbey Lee and her boyfriend, Our Mountain front man Matthew Hutchinson.
The first in a series of three, this cut of the film focuses on Abbey Lee bringing to life the spirit of the women’s collection, as she assumes her natural role of Our Mountain’s femme fatale. The second video, set to be published tonight on CQC, allows Matthew Hutchinson to take stage in pieces from the men’s line. A final cut of the video, featuring the full length version of Our Mountain’s single »Devils Banquet« will debut at the Pierre Balmain presentation tomorrow in Paris and will be released on Monday October 3rd.
