ASX.TV: Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin – “YSL” (2009)

Yves Saint Laurent’s fall 2009 men’s show in Paris this week opened with a short film directed by photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. It consists of only a full-frame shot of Michael Pitt’s face as he listens to an unseen woman talk to him erotically about clothes. “I lift up the T-shirt that peeks out from the sleeves and see underneath, you’re stark naked,” she rasps in French. “You dream of me rubbing your feet… I raise the veil from your leather belt and discover where your firm, flat stomach begins. Trousers which, though baggy, fall perfectly straight.” It’s totally SFW but doesn’t feel like it. Genius.
