Stop what youre doing and watch this ethereal video by Björk! She has just released the music video for “The Gate”, her first single of the forthcoming new album. This beautiful hallucinogenic video is co-produced by Arca. And artist Andrew Thomas Huang also helps to envision a kaleidoscopic world. Björk has never made anything simple. Her works are always ethereal and mesmerizing. Here are some of the GIF we made from her new music video.
In this video Björk wore a custom iridescent otherworldly gown designed by Gucci’s Alessandro Michele. According to Alessandro, the garment took approximately 870 hours to make (OMG!!) — 550 for the dress and an additional 320 hours for the embroidery.
The dress’s fabrics include 5 meters of pleated iridescent PVC plastic material, 3 meters of PVC iridescent strips and 20 meters of pleated lurex organza. You might think the editing team did some CGI on her gown, but sorry, that is all real you guys! In short, Björk’s Gucci dress is simply stunning. This dress definitely fits her aura and personality with the highest of perfection! Watch the full video of Björk’s ethereal “The Gate” down below:
