Daniele Luppi: Pretty Prizes (ft. Soko and Karen O)

The first film for Daniele Luppi’s new MILANO project—a collection of fictionalized stories about misfits, fashionistas, and junkies in mid-1980s Milan—Pretty Prizes is a chic New Wave-style mystery shot by British-born director Barnaby Clay, who has worked with the likes of Rihanna and David Bowie.

For this multi-song video, the New York-based filmmaker has created a beguiling visual narrative to accompany the composer’s new album, bringing together Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O and Brooklyn punk rockers Parquet Courts, who perform the music that appears in this snapshot of sex, death and decadence—conjuring a Milan that was known as ‘Milano da bere’ (‘Drinking Milan’).
