The second collaboration with filmmaker Harmony Korine, the video Snowballs features Proenza Schouler’s Fall 2011 collection. Inspired by the great American west, the Navajo blanket-inspired textiles are featured throughout the video. Korine was given carte blanche to capture the collection on film, resulting in a four minute video titled Snowballs.

Oh man how hip! I’m definitely watching this when I get home from work… and errands…
this was…interesting. i’m going to show all my native american friends now :)

As an interesting side note to Harmony Korine, he showed up at the Gang Gang Dance concert here in Nashville a few days ago. They gave him a microphone and as Gang Gang Dance proceeded to jam out, he chanted “we love that pusssssy” for at least 20 minutes straight. Charming
Was Chloe there?
Why did God invent Harmony Korine?
That seems to be a more humiliating question than “Who shot JFK?”
Ryan – that’s awesome!! Did you get to meet him?
I think I’m finally done with Harmony Korine. I was a mild apologist for a long time and it took a while but that video – and everything else he’s done recently – was just too much more of the same. When artists lapse into self-parody, I jump ship.
I have no good Harmony Korine anecdote except that I once saw him at a Bonnie Prince Billy show in the late 90s in Hoboken. We took the same train back to the city. He was exactly as you imagine him to be.
“I think I’m finally done with Harmony Korine.”
Welcome to the other side, Ari. I went to a screening of Trash Humpers a couple years ago and Korine was there to talk about the film afterwards. You’re right that he’s exactly as you’d imagine him to be. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more vile “filmmaker” (if that’s what people want to call him) – he makes Vincent Gallo look like George Clooney.
Sorry for the rant. Didn’t mean to poop on this thread. I guess I’m still bitter about wasting those two hours watching Trash Humpers.
I admit I was moderately amused by Trash Humpers as bad performance art goes….. Actually, I’ll probably still end up seeing Korine’s Val Kilmer short as part of that bizarre anthology project.. Sounds like it will probably be awful though:
“I guess I’m still bitter about wasting those two hours watching Trash Humpers.”
and if you count that it’s actually only an hour long, you must’ve really hate it!
ha! Was it only an hour long? Wow, yeah, it seemed sooooo much longer! lol
What a bizarre, bizarre film.
The credits don’t list who did the eerie sing-songy narration. :(
I would assume it’s the man listed for ‘original music’. I would cite him, but the player won’t allow one to skip ahead.
Was this a compensatory endeavor? Because there isn’t much to this.
Yo Estabrooks, you think he was tripping? btw, GGD is awesome. Especially diggin’ the new lp, on par with the stellar Saint.D.
No, Chloe was not at the concert and I did not get to meet/talk with him. Also, he decided to play a bass guitar and the drums with a shoe. It was a bit bizarre but the audience reaction was classic. Everyone was just standing around looking at each other.
I’m not sure if he was tripping or not but it wouldn’t surprise me at all. He looked a bit out of it, like he was in his own zone. Not sure if that’s how he normally is though.
It’s hard to tell with him. He may be on some constant innate trip.
As my four-year-old son is fond of saying, I don’t love that.
