London based Copson go above and beyond for their latest release, as they present a dreamy set of visuals to capture the brands Spring/Summer 2015 offering in the “A Young Summers Heart” short film and accompanying “Saverio Dream” lookbook.
The video component, A Young Summers Heart, was filmed by Brazilian-Italian director Romano Pizzichini of Palmeira Pictures and produced by the brands founder and former pro skateboarder Maria Falbo. The short film follows an optimistic skater, played by Danish skateboarder Villads Larsen, as he looks to escape the troubles of his home city and carve out a peaceful life in the quiet Italian town of San Morello. Following his struggle to adapt to the language and deal with his girlfriends grumpy father, Larsen finds his happiness in skateboarding and pizza, some of the delights the town has to offer. With no explanation as to why he’s there, the video leaves a lot to the imagination, allowing you to interpret his story yourself.
The complimenting lookbook shot by Lydia Garnett gives us a closer look at the ‘Saverio Dream’ collection, as she utilises the scenic backdrop from the video’s location in Calabria, Italy. Incorporating elements of the beachside town into the visuals, the collection draws from 50’s-60’s american poolside vibes, applying simplistic designs and colour palette to skate ready silhouettes, which include printed coach jackets, graphic tees, long sleeves and hoodies. The laid back open collar cocktail shirts are our top picks from the collection, which feature custom prints from artist and skater Jamie Humphrey.
