Irregular, sock thieves!

By Jo Phillips

Stealing socks isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think about fashion films but sock brand Happy Socks have collaborated with internationally renowned photographer and film maker Ellen von Unwerth on a little something to make you smile.   An amusing and vivid photoshoot featuring model Stella Maxwell alongside Eva Doll and Cody Saintgnue.

 Think kitsch 50’s technicolour, think the film The Swimmer, mix it together with a whole load of humour and sex..Volia!!  All pouting lips and sugar sweet colour  mixed with housework and villains which make for a funny comedy sock  romp, all about stealing socks.  In fact the film ‘The Sock Swip’ is part of a series of 12 pictures celebrating the brands  A/W16 collection of socks & underwear.
