Today, The xx has released the music video for their latest song “I Dare You”, which Simons collaborated on with photographer Alasdair McLellan and styled by Another Man’s Ellie Grace Cumming. As a longstanding fan of the band, the designer saw a connection between some of the band’s previous singles and his work at Calvin Klein so wanted to help create the atmospheric elements in the video.
In addition to lending a creative eye, Simons also helped cast the talent, video with some familiar faces you might recognise. Millie Bobby Brown and Ashton Sanders – both previous Dazed cover stars – make appearances, as well as a few models from the AW17 show and Paris Jackson, who is rumoured to have recently signed a huge deal with Calvin Klein.
Simons’ future in fashion assured, but should he fancy a change of scene, we’re pretty sure he’d find a new calling in the music biz.
