WOODKID for Nicolas Ghesquière – Louis Vuitton Works One

Woodkid For Nicolas Ghesquière - Louis Vuitton Works One

NOTE 10/25/19: This is one of those posts I drafted months ago, I think in May. Well, it stayed in draft status because ya know, life happens. I intended on writing more in depth about my love of Woodkid and his music and other talents, but I just don’t have the time. But this post should no go to the trash. If only to share and hopefully pass on something new.

Works One

LISTEN

WORKS ONE

Released May 7, 2019
Two year long project that Woodkid made with Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s artistic director for women collections. The songs were made for the Louis Vuitton‘s Fall/Winter in 2017.

Music plays an essential role in the scenography of the Louis Vuitton shows, it determines the atmosphere of the collection. The Cruise 2019 show at the Maeght Foundation began with an orchestral performance in the Giacometti courtyard, signed by Woodkid, as well as the soundtrack of the show On Then And Now. In the soundtrack, we hear the voice of American actress Jennifer Connelly reading excerpts from Grace Coddington’s biography Grace: A Memoir as well as the Children’s Choirs of Nagoya. The rhythm is jerky, repetitive, the music, haunting. It is the fruit of a long work between Yoann Lemoine (Woodkid) and Nicolas Ghesquière.

They have already collaborated together, Woodkid had made the soundtrack for the Fall/Winter 2019 show and collection. Musician, composer and director, Woodkid became famous by realizing clips for Lana Del Rey, Rihanna and Drake. His solo album The Golden Age had a great success iRn 2013 thanks to the aesthetics of the clips he had himself realised. We meet him at Saint Paul de Vence to discuss the process of sound work on a fashion show and his affinities with Louis Vuitton.

Glad He’s Gone

State of America - 24HR Repair

Can someone please tell me what the melody is from? It’s not a cover, the lyrics are different, but the tune is so familiar… I think there’s actually two different songs in there. I think maybe Taylor Swift or I don’t know. But it’s driving me nuts. Don’t get me wrong, I like the song and love Tove Lo, I just feel like I’ve heard this somewhere before…

He’s gone, he’s gone
You’re better off, I’m glad that he’s gone
He’s gone, he’s gone
You’re better off, I’m glad that he’s gone
I got a girlfriend, she’s got a boyfriend
She calls me crying every day
‘cause they got problems
He likes complaining, she’s compromising
Coming to me for real advice when he just playing
I can tell she loves him way too deep
He loves being fucking hard to please
Cover the basics, it’s pretty easy
He’s a bitch with some expectations
Did you go down on his birthday? (Yup)
Did you let him leave a necklace? (Yup)
Or did you show him all your crazy? (No)
Blow him up on the weekends (Hmm)
Did you give in to his ego
Just to give a little confidence?
I think you know it’s time to let go
(You’re better off I’m glad that he’s gone)
My baby

Never no tears
for that sucker
Only one dick,
that’s a bummer

Dancing all night, get guys’ numbers
Baby, no tears for that sucker
We’ll never go dry this whole summer
Wanna get over, get under

2020 Is Around The Corner

Cadmium Free Test

I’m constantly editing… when the moment of inspiration comes, I have to take advantage of it. This list is what came from the muse this morning.

Just from one song, I pulled together this “set” of current things I’m listening to as well as some dusty stuff from the closet. I’ll probably edit it more later and add or subtract, but let me know what you think or if there are some things you think would work in there.
