Harmony Korine's New Proenza Schouler Video Is Set In A 'Crystal Meth Trailer Park'


Proenza Schouler had Harmony Korine make this new short, entitled Snowballs, for the brand. “I don’t know if anyone can make a crystal meth trailer park seem chic,” said Vogue‘s Lauren Santo Domingo at the Paris premiere party. The clip features clothing from Proenza Schouler’s fall collection, which was inspired by a trip designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough took through the American West and Southwest. “We spent time in Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico exploring Native American history and their crafts and were inspired by Navajo textiles,” explained Hernandez when he testified before Congress in support of a bill earlier this year. “When you look at our designs you won’t see knockoffs of Navajo crafts. Instead you will see that we incorporated their feel and some of their elements to create our own originals.” To that, Korine added warbonnets. Sensitive! The movie is basically like David Lynch with more natural light and less menace. McCollough half-joked about the video, “It’s not like a sales vehicle. It’s a sales deterrent if anything.”
