Swatch MTV Playground: Fred Butler on fashion and film


By now hopefully you’re all aware of the Swatch MTV Playground; a meeting of creative minds, celebrating all that’s exciting and inspirational about fashion and music – and what happens when the two combine. You’ve seen the first exclusive video I posted with Fred Butler and Alex Noble and you’ve created your own badass Swatch design in the online contest, right?

In my latest sneaky interview, above, you can see the lovely Fred Butler (and her beautiful manicure) talk about her career highlights and how film has helped her bring her work to a wider audience. After you’ve watched Fred do her thing, check out a few of my favourite fashion films below. It’s a well known fact that I have little to no knowledge of films, but I do have a few fashionable morsels up my sleeve…

My favourite – that little-known masterpiece, 200 Cigarettes. How Courtney Love fans still don’t know about this film boggles the mind. Its rarity perhaps explains the fact there are no good quality trailers online, only fan videos like this.

Nutso Czech 60s new wave masterpiece, Daisies. More hipsters should be in to this. Why aren’t they?

Hipsters are, however, quite rightly in to Ladies and Gentlemen: The Fabulous Stains.

Hell yeah! Heavy Metal Parking Lot.

Obviously The Great Gatsby 1974 edition is balls, but it is nice to look at.

BTW, all of the above were posted about in great detail in the blog that passed away (RIP). I have a fanciful idea that I will resurrect all those posts very soon, so watch this space.
