I am excited to reveal the continuation of the story of Street Boy and Girl which I shared some time ago. A collaboration between Lips Brothers and Bonsoir Chérie. Inspired by filmstills of works such as Chungking Express from Wong Kar Wai and the Diesel Fall Winter Collection we found our own language.

As we follow the story of a boy and girl we discover that the night has always had a certain appeal to them. So as soon as the sun sets they put on their leather jackets and head out into the night. Fascinated by the people, the lights, the music and ultimately themselves they are in search of the endless opportunities a night out in town can bring.
It is not the polished, perfect-seeming versions of the people running up and down the streets in the daytime, but rather the aimless creatures who are looking for a couple of hours of distraction from everyday life they seem more intersted in. Still not sure who they are and want to become they are sure of one thing: They don't want to be one of those living zombies.
In a time where everyone strives for individuality it feels like looking out on a snow-capped field: We know every snow flake is individual, yet put together they all look the same. But in the end the question remains, are we being individual for ourselves or for others?
And so the hunt for for life and its meaning continues until the crack of dawn.
