It appears as though Harmony Korine’s vacation has come to an end as yesterday marked the release of the Spring Breakers director’s commercial for Dior’s newest fragrance, Addict. While this partnership with the storied fashion house admittedly caught us a little off guard, it is by no means the Nashville native's first foray into fashion. Korine has worked with Proenza Schouler on two fashion films and collaborated with French fashion designer agnès b on a laundry list of projects. Inspired by the chandelier swinging glamour of his latest project, here are Harmony’s five most iconic looks.
While the garbage humping senior citizens and cornrowed James Franco characters that have left Korine's critics scratching their heads in the past are notably absent from this minute-long spot, the hypnotic fragrance advert is still unmistakably his. Korine quickly thrusts us into a world that’s marked both by a surreal sensuousness and surveillance style shots. Scored by South African rave-rap duo Die Antwoord, whose Umshini Wam music video he directed in 2011, this playful celebration of youth still screams “Harmony.”
