Check out our EXCLUSIVE first look at Stewart + Brown's Summer 2011 line, including a video inspired by Leonard Cohen
shot the teaser for its Summer 2011 collection in its hometown of Ventura, CA, but you'd be forgiven for confusing Art City with the untamed wilds of Borneo. Directed by Nicholas Haggard and Shad David, and set to Nina Simone's soulful rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne," the film takes the label's globe-trotting avatar east toward an unnamed realm of "tea and oranges." Our heroine sallies forth in ikat-inspired safari shirts, off-the-shoulder leopard-print dresses, and sarong-style twisted tanks—all made in the United States, of course—as the "sun pours down like honey" and Suzanne leads us to the river.
