DAVID LACHAPELLE FOR HAPPY SOCKS

The Swedish brand Happy Socks asked superstar photographer David LaChapelle to do whatever he wanted with socks for the brand’s Holiday 2013 campaign. The photographer directed a 9-minute short film, The Exorsocks. The result is provocative, fantastic, ironic, pop, flashy and bizarre just like his true style; very LaChapalle! In the short film we see dancer Katie Johnson playing a messed-up prostitute who becomes “possessed” by an uncontrollable desire to dance after she puts on a pair of new Happy Socks.

LaChapelle is a very unusual choice for a socks advertising campaign but we appreciate Happy Socks’ vision for collaborating with a creative artist and we love Happy Socks!

 

Here you can see the photos by David LaChapelle for the Happy Socks campaign.
