Ok, I really like this. Who doesn’t love the original version of “I Want Your Love” by Chic?
But Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers collaborated on this updated take on the 1978 hit for Tom Ford’s new Spring/Summer 2016 collection with a video directed by Nick Knight. And I think the whole thing shows high style with great music production.
“Instead of having a traditional show this season, I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online,” Ford said in a statement.
“I have always loved Soul Train which used to be on TV in the Seventies; as it was as much about the clothes as the music, I asked Nile Rodgers to collaborate on a new version of one of his great hits from that time, ‘I Want Your Love,’ and worked with Gaga to record the vocals.
“I then staged a full show in Los Angeles and filmed it with Gaga on the runway.”
