Delivering a cinematic love letter to the City of Angels, Petra Collins has released her first film – and we've got a roll of film from behind the scenes. Aptly titled Drive Time, Collins takes her audience on a dreamy cruise through L.A’s sun kissed, palm tree-lined streets with a stellar all-girl cast, including Cherry Glazerr front girl Clementine Creevy, Rookie mag contributor Arrow de Wilde and her mother, music photographer Autumn, as well as New York-born artist couple Erin and Sam Falls, and Nguzunguzu producer and M.I.A’s DJ Asma Maroof. “Nobody cares what anybody else thinks in L.A,” muses Creevy as the cast riff on the city’s art world, its energetic hub of girl power and “all the weird people on Hollywood boulevard.” The Swedish-born brand – who have just set up shop in the States (literally) – commissioned Collins alongside fellow creative Aaron Rose. His film, The Bubble, heads to the East Coast in a contrasting ode to New York, but for now, take a trip to the best coast in this starling look at California's new dreamers.
