Maybe it’s because “Get Lucky” is stuck on a permanent loop in their brains like it is in ours, but the fashion world can’t seem to get enough of Daft Punk. Specifically, they keep pressing repeat on these shiny editorials in which the masked Parisian robot-DJ hybrids sandwich a supermodel.
Vogue‘s August spread (which was the cause of much speculation back in June) featured Karlie Kloss with a frizzy bob strolling through Manhattan arm-in-arm with the Punks, stopping occasionally to fix her makeup in the glossy reflection of their helmets (which Vogue calls “their stylish disguises”).
But CR Fashion Book went a much more sexual route in its “Digital Love”-titled editorial (you’re shocked we know). Carine Roitfeld was reportedly banned from using any Conde Nast contract photographers after she left Vogue Paris but using the same pop stars as Vogue? That’s totally OK. And likely a big coincidence. Daft Punk told Roitfeld’s mag about their recent album, Random Access Memories: “This album is about technology going toward humanity, in a world where humanity is going towards technology.” So yeah… looks like the spread was an accurate representation of what they’re going for.
So which Daft Punk plus model scene do you prefer? A casual robotic stroll through NYC, or a hot-and-heavy metallic couch sesh?
