OneTeaspoon’s Denim Cult
Sydney based cult denim label OneTeaspoon‘s latest collection, Resist. Revolt. Rebel is an on-trend representation of the current pull towards fusing exotic embroidery, fringing and Aztec and oriental-inspired prints with leather flares, chunky batwing knits and old-school slogan tees, in an attempt to recreate the past.
This short film, directed and produced by award winning film maker Taylor Steele and shot by New York-based photographer Paul De Luna, stars Australian model Krystal Glynn, who has already worked for the likes of Helmut Lang, Marc Jacobs and Philosophy di Alberta Feretti in her short career.
Shot in Byron Bay’s hinterlands, the film captures a private moment of independence and individuality that Glynn finds herself in when she stumbles upon a ‘denim wearing cult.’ Steele told Portable:
Jamie (Blakey – OneTeaspoon designer) gave us a rough idea of what she was envisioning for the line and we collaboratively came up with the story to bring it to life. A lot of the day’s elements came together on their own due to the weather but I think in the end, it worked out better.
De Luna also explained to Portable how he and Steele were able to achieve such hazy imagery;
Rain and lots of it! Mixed with the darkness of the overcast sky. We chose not to light the scene with reflectors etc and just go with natural light to maintain the rawness of the narrative.
