The song of the week is “The Windmills of Your Mind” by Petula Clark, which is a cover of a 1968 song originally sung by Michel Legrand (and written by Alan and Marilyn Bergman). I chose this song because, as you can see, Saint Laurent released a short film directed by Bret Easton Ellis, titled “The Arrangement” and starring Hopper Penn, Tes Linnenkoper, and Dakota Lindvall (the son of super model Angela Lindvall).
“The Arrangement” looks like the tormented menage à trois of young and stylish people, set in a beautiful mansion (probably in Los Angeles).
“The Windmills of Your Mind” is part of the soundtrack of “The Thomas Crown Affair”, a 1968 film directed by Norman Jewison and starring Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. The song won an Oscar for best original song and it’s been sung by many artists, both in English and French (with the title “Le moulins de mon coeur”). Eva Mendes also performed this track for the commercial of Angel by Thierry Mugler, when she was the face of the fragrance.
Petula Clark’s 1969 version was also featured in the soundtrack of “Killing Them Softly”, a 2012 film starring Brad Pitt and directed by Andrew Dominik.
I don’t know about you, but I love when fashion teams up with writers, directors, artists. The result is always interesting and often sophisticated.
