"Iron" by Woodkid

An epic WiW post, to help you get through the longest hump day of the year!

Featuring supermodel Agyness Deyne, this video looks like Karl Lagerfeld and/or Steven Klein shooting an editorial for Vogue inspired by The Guild, or Warcraft. It’s a sexy, stylized representation of the struggles befallen a band of MMORPG characters; and a stunningly realized work of art. A reason to watch music videos again.

Bonus: Iron has been embraced by both the fashion and geek worlds: The song itself was used for both the Dior Homme F/w 12-13 show, entitled “A Soldier on My Own”—A direct line from the song— AND the trailers for Assassins Creed Revelations. In fact, here’s some bonus videos! See for yourself:

(feel free to jump to the beautiful finale of Dior Homme at 8:29)
