Ralph Lauren’s decidedly edgier line has a history of tapping young, up-and-coming musicians. For a past dual fall campaigns, a code collaborated with Avicii on a series of strain videos, including a Swedish DJ’s strike singular “Wake Me Up.” So it should come as no warn that the conform giant planned a big number for a buzzy new headliners: A reconstitute of a iconic 1970s strain “Express Yourself”, that they filmed in N.Y.C.’s mythological Electric Lady Studios. (Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and Patti Smith have all recorded there.)
“Being means to play guitar during Electric Lady, it was only so sick,” says Simpson. “I’m a crazy Hendrix fan, so being there was rad for me.”
