oh darlin’

I’ve not posted about our new video for a while – humble apologies to those looking forward to seeing it. Exciting things are afoot in the land of Sweet Tooth, so we’ll have to keep our pretty cards close to our chest for just a little while longer…

In the meantime, I want to cheekily pique your interest (“a tease? Who… me?”) by sharing with you the newest work by Maximilla (one half of the Belles who filmed ‘Venus’).

This “Darlin’” short fashion film, made in collaboration with Lula Magazine’s Leith Clark (as if you couldn’t tell), showcases Orla Kiely‘s Spring 2013 collection, which Kiely states was inspired by “Palm Springs, Slim Aarons, summer resorts from the 1960s, and the pool culture of that time period.”

It makes me wish that the briefest bliss of an ‘Indian Summer’ we just enjoyed in London could be endless. I adore the film’s dreamy, sun-lit playfulness. The music by Erika Spring of Au Revoir Simone is perfect. And if the whole collection could find its way into my wardrobe sometime soon, I’d be most happy indeed.

london in puddles

You may already be familiar with Gavin’s beautifully moody and evocative photography as it’s been featured here on our site before.

The London Eye



If not, I’d like to remedy that situation right now, in light of the fact that it would be remiss for our fans not to know about it considering he’s received coverage in many of the UK’s national press this week! 


His ‘London in Puddles’ lomography series has been featured in Stylist magazineThe Telegraph, The Metro, The Daily Mail, The Evening Standard, and The Mirror,  no doubt inspired by the rainy weather we endured over the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee holiday (which was wonderful, but VERY wet).


He told the papers: “I stumbled upon my first puddles image by accident. My bicycle had been stolen so I was walking into town along the South Bank for once rather than pedalling past it in a hurry. It began to rain as I approached the London Eye and a large flock of tourists were blocking my way. I hate to be in a crowd so I stared at my feet as I waited for them to pass. And lo! a beautiful reflection of one of the gondolas emerged from a puddle, like a vision from another world, a view of a parallel universe.”

You can see his entire London set here on his Flickr page, (please get in touch with us via or contact page if you’d like to purchase prints).


Never one to rest on his laurels, Gavin (and film editor Phil G) also just produced this audio/visual clip showcasing his other sets of snaps, alongside a remix of our track ‘At Your Leisure,’ done by Berlin-based producer and DJ, Deep Child


We hope you enjoy its dark and mellow loveliness…

This is too fabulous not to share.

Very soon you’ll get to see her swinging from a ‘Venus’ star – the video’s coming asap :)

I posted this pic on our Facebook and Twitter pages last week, but it’s too great not to share here too (at least until we have the actual video to post – any day now, we promise!).

would you like to swing on a star?

… carry moon-beams home in a jar?

Would you believe that this hastily snapped iPhone pic is the only shot I managed to take myself at the ‘Venus In Hollywood’ video shoot in New York last week?

It shows the crew only just getting started on the first set, but it gives you a little glimpse (before I was whisked off into hair & makeup and didn’t pick up my phone for another 12 hours!).

~☆~

I can’t look at it without singing this lovely tune (because, yes – they are trapeze hoops being hung, in case you’re wondering!).

venus in… new york.

Further to my recent post re ‘Venus In Hollywood,’ we have some very pleasing news.

At the end of the month I’ll be heading to NYC to shoot a video for the track. It will be directed by Maximilla LukacsSarah Sophie Flicker, who together make up the wonderful Belles of the Black Diamond Field.

The creative treatment they’ve provided is shaping up to brilliant so I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ll let you see their work for yourself – this film was made as a collaboration between Top Shop and my favourite magazine in the world, Lula (of which Sarah Sophie is ‘editor at large’ – a fabulous title if there ever was one).

See more of their work for music and fashion (including ethereal videos for Karen Elson and First Aid Kit) here.

Their aesthetic couldn’t be more appropriate for Sweet Tooth, don’t you agree?

Berlin here we come!



Sweet Tooth has just been asked by the Interfilm Festival in Berlin if we would like to showcase our Everybody Wants To Be In Love video clip in their short film category. Love that town and can’t wait to go, so the answer is definitely, YES!

We are in the process of turning the clip into a graphic novel, so it’s perfect timing!

so long, summertime

It’s pouring with rain here in London town, and though we’ve only just slipped into September the balmy evenings and sunny days seem to have packed their bags and migrated south for the winter.

This quirky little video just cheered me up though (and not just as we’re obvious fans of the cut-out clip, here at Sweet Tooth Towers!).
