FKA TWIGS DIRECTS NIKE’S ‘DO YOU BELIEVE IN MORE?’
Coincides with Release of new single ‘Trust In Me’
Is there no end to the talent inside this 28 year-old singer, dancer and now director FKA Twigs - a.k.a Tahlia Debrett Barnett from South London? The creative powerhouse has just starred in and directed a mesmerising new TVC for Nike Women, featuring a posse of supreme female athletes dressed up as lionesses cum medieval assassins. Overlayed with a snippet of her brand new track ‘Trust in Me’, Twigs said this about the opportunity to direct the highly conceptual ad.
"When Nike first came to me with this project, I saw it as an opportunity to let young people know they have the power to become the best versions of themselves. I put together a cast of 12 incredible athletes to show that it's about what you do in fitness gear. It's about how you train. It's about how those things help your movement."
Consider us inspired. Here’s the clip:
