>> I was going to tack this onto the original eggy Rodarte x Maggie Cheung Joyce post but then as the images invaded my iMac screen, it seemed like a bit of an insult to just bung them onto the butt-end of a post.  So here are the beautiful BEAUTIFUL stills by Wing Shya from the short film he directed, which is now available in full on YouTube.  For every click on the video, Joyce will be donating HK$1 to UNICEF so get clicking… the soundtrack by Peter Kam really does the trick in accompanying Shya's cinematography and direction of these celestial-esque beings wafting around in the Rodarte pieces… 




I particularly love the movement in the "Hero" white knit piece… oh and the A/W 10 Nicholas Kirkwood 'wax heel' shoes are working a treat in these shots…

    amazingly beautiful… words seem not to be enough

  2. You were right not to tag on end! Lovely (sighs) short. I’m more obsessed by film these days and can appreciate the cinematography more than the clothes. Opps.

  5. Clare says:

    These are oh so stunning. The film is a little bit perfect too.

  6. Wow these really come to life in these photos, it’s a big difference compared to just seeing them hanging limp on some mannequins. The video is incredible, the musical piece is so fitting and haunting and sounds a bit tragic but also really beautiful, I’m in awe.

  7. stills, these look like photographs that have taken hours to capture amazing

    i do love the idea of taking inspiration from film to create pieces like that, it’s a really nice way to go about things. beautiful photos capturing motion, just like you say!

    breathtaking… but I think Wing Shya really doesn’t need to do much effort on the art direction as 1) Rodarte’s dresses are already breathtaking 2) Slow motion with the deathly choir background music is always interested to watch and created the mood. I think this execution is really safe but I think it can be pushed more to improve as Rodarte always stand as the artistic perfectionist.

    I always love Wing Shya, his colors, his style …
    This short film is very poetic, the model is
    graceful and mysterious, all is very captivate,
    the wonderful colors, the music also …
    And the photos are amazing …

    It’s nice… but I was trying to get to the point of this video… and I couldn’t come up with much… Am I tasteless? 🙂

  15. Sofia Leo says:

    The first two photos are my favourite, but i love all the black and white ones, the effect creates a completely different atmosphere.

    maggie cheung never ceases to amaze me with her ability for transformation while still keeping her very special aura about her. what a lovely, artistic collaboration.

  17. Merissa Ren says:

    essence of maggie cheung.
    what every asian girl could ever possibly want to obtain, and better yet distilled by rodarte, such perfection.

  18. Catherine says:

    I pretend to be a cool asian like that
