Video: Rock & Republic Gets a Bit Artsy


Rock & Republic, best known for its denim and celeb-heavy fashion shows, decided to put on a quiet presentation in Paris this year, followed by a raucous party celebrating the release of a collection film by photographer Paola Kudacki. The filmette, based on Nabokov's Lolita, follows the themes of naïveté, sexual innocence, and restraint. Did we mention it's totally silent? Watch as the tattooed and greased-up models writhe, stare into the camera, hold their heads in pain (no doubt out of sexual restraint), prance, pose, spread, and yes, use crotch lights to show us just how much sexual innocence they have. Silently.
