Raf Simons' latest creative endeavor isn't a collection of clothing, but rather a video collaboration: the designer worked with British indie band The XX on their latest music video for the single "I Dare You."

Shot by photographer and filmmaker Alasdair McLellan, the film follows two young couples — and one third-wheeling little sister — as they play hooky in Los Angeles and sneak into a haunted house. The video features a host of Calvin Klein favorites, including "Stranger Things" star Millie Bobby Brown, "Moonlight" actor Ashton Sanders, celebrity offspring-on-the-rise Paris Jackson and models Lulu and Ernesto Cervantes. Unsurprisingly, the entire cast wears a lot of Calvin Klein throughout the video.

According to a press release from the brand, the collaboration came about in part because Simons is a longtime fan of The XX's work, in particular McLellan's videos for the band.

"Seeing a connection between the videos and his own work at Calvin Klein, Simons was pleased to collaborate on the third video of the trilogy, lending his eye to the architectural and atmospheric elements and utilizing an eclectic cast of Calvin Klein collaborators," reads a release sent out by the American fashion house Thursday.
