One of my favorite artists, Swedish pop star Robyn, just released the video for her single “Call Your Girlfriend”, off of her latest album, Body Talk. Directed by Max Vitali, it was recorded in a single take inside an LA Warehouse.
A performance video, the simplicity of it forces you to focus on her, the music, and her energetic dance moves (which seriously give new meaning to “dancing on my own”).
I love it. I got to see Robyn in concert this past December (thanks again for the birthday gift Steph!) and she puts on an excellent show. This video is a true representation of her in her zone. You can tell that she actually enjoys what she’s doing, which makes her performances that much more engaging.
If you haven’t picked up Body Talk yet (released in 3 parts, take your pick), you’re missing out.
On a fashion note, I love the floral leggings that’s she’s sporting in the video. Robyn has a quirky sense of style that’s like a mix of 80s club kid & B-Girl. I’ve seen her do glam and haute couture in editorials but her videos seem to be more true to her personal style. In the video her leggings are by Jeremy Scott (which unfortunately, I can’t find any shopping info on. There’s a possibility they’re vintage or even custom, but based on the images from his website, they weren’t a part of his Spring or Fall 2011 Collections), however, if you want to try the trend this summer, I did find some alternatives:
|Play Me Floral Bow Skinny Jeans, $110|
|Betsy Johnson The Gorgeous Tights, $25|
|MOTO Yellow Floral Skinny Jeans, $90|
|Joyrich, The Ambush Foral Leggings, $50|
In the video, Robyn pairs her leggings with her own RODEBJER top and custom platform Timberland boots, but an easy way to rock it in the “real world” would be with a loose tank (slightly oversized; if you really want that 90s vibe, wear it cropped), and a pair of Chucks. You can wear heels, but idk, I think chucks makes it a little more downtown cool.
