Fashion Film: Perroquet

by Sølve Sundsbø on 2 October 2008

Shot on high-speed cameras, this short film by Sølve Sundsbø captures the perroquet mid-flight in stunning slow-motion. Sundsbø looks to this as fashion on an evolutionary scale: compared to the fast-paced, demanding nature of the fashion calendar and the many ‘looks’ each season produces, this creature’s stunning ‘outfit’ has taken centuries to develop.
