Lifted off Fischerspooner’s forthcoming album SIR, Nicopanda premieres today a single from the electroclash duo called, “Everything Is Just Allright,” which soundtracks their new dance-heavy fashion film. Wrapped in grizzly, droning production, the track perfectly complements 20-year-old Josh Killacky’s aggressive choreography—a sonic and visual marriage that Nicola Formichetti pieced together in light of his ballerina-punk, SS ’16 collection.
“I smell the smoke, I smell the piss, I smell the anger,” Fischerspooner sings, as Killacky works through movement wearing three symbolic color stories—white, to represent the good, black, to represent the bad, and pink, to represent something in-between. Though on the surface, Killacky looks “angelic,” as Formichetti describes, his sharp, confrontational dancing suggests otherwise.
This juxtaposition reflect’s Nicopanda’s collection, merging the whimsy of dance culture and hard edge of street culture—a balance that’s permeated the brand’s aesthetic since its 2011 conception. Hoodies, sweatpants and tees are all trimmed with ribbons and lace, subverting these contemporary staples with a strong dose of saccharine sweetness. Watch the Alexander Alexandrov-directed film, below.
