Milan Fashion Week Clip: Music By Jake Shears, Narration By Jane Fonda

From the New York Times:
Consider “The Future of Flesh,” a short film by the director Luke Gilford that has its premiere here, which features models in surreal latex body suits outfitted entirely in Prada’s current fall 2013 collection. The eerie, evocative video features an original score by Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters and is narrated by Jane Fonda — not coincidentally, another complicated feminist icon. While the clip is not the usual terrain for Fonda, she was easily convinced to lend her voice. “When Jake asked me to collaborate on the video I thought, For Jake, anything. He’s so out-of-this-world creative and cutting-edge, I knew it would be exciting. I was right,” she said, describing the project as “just wild and unique and Pedro Almodovarish.”
