Oliver Peoples + Autumn De Wilde

I can't remember where I first saw this video campaign for the California eyeglass designer Oliver Peoples, but I do know that I loved it. And I still do. Shirley Manson and Elijah Wood are so lovely. Throw the incredibly talented photographer/director Autumn De Wilde in there and you've got something amazing. Watch the video, I'll catch up with you after...

Isn't it pretty? The costumes and the set design are so romantic and modern. I love his bowtie and her bright pink tights and that dining room. Oh yah, and the glasses. Don't you adore the flip-up sunnies? Just like Dwayne Wayne on a Different World. Classssssy.

I thought I'd also chat a bit about Autumn (since she's a good seventy-five percent of the reason that campaign is awesome). I didn't realize she was as big a deal as she is. She's photographed some of our most iconic musicians; people like Beck and Rilo Kiley/Jenny Lewis and the Flaming Lips and Elliott Smith. You'll enjoy these images I'm sure of it. (Starting with some stills of the above video - just in case you didn't watch it like I asked you to. Naughty.)

Great huh? There's more to see on her site. And you should definitely check out the other Oliver Peoples' videos (another one directed by Autumn and starring Zooey Deschanel + Matt Costa and a super sexy one with Devendra Banhart). PS. Isn't Fiona Apple gorgeous? Those eyes!
