"Run" by The Knux Feat. Kid Cudi Music Video Shoot

This past Saturday, I assisted stylist Katharine Polk for the "Run" music video by The Knux, featuring Kid Cudi. The shoot was on location all around Manhattan, so every few hours was a new setting. We traveled from the studio to the Mondrian Hotel in Soho, to Webster Hall, to the Meatpacking District, and finally to Brooklyn. Katharine pulled a very eclectic selection of clothing- they were used for the models who were featured in the video. The style was very rock and roll- loose fits, leather, sequins, denim, fringes, headscarves, and heels were involved...and it looked amazing! All Saints, Foley + Corinna, Charles Henry, and R13 were some of the brands worn. Always used to being around fashion and editorial or look book shoots, it was definitely a change to be behind the scenes of a music video. Of course, fashion played a large role...it helps define the character! But also the music captured the sound of the band. The Knux, is actually short for The Knuckle Heads, and the members include brothers Kentrell "Krispy" Lindsey and Alvin "Joey" Lindsey. Their alternative hip hop style is mixed between electronic and rock. Listen to them for yourself- and be ready to see their video "Run" coming soon!
