Rihanna and Calvin Harris’ newest music video features an up-and-comer.
Released Friday at midnight, the video for “This Is What You Came For” places Rihanna inside of a cube — filled with strobe lights and projections — but her stylist Mel Ottenberg looked outside of the box to find her accompanying sartorial look. The singer dons a floor-length sparkly cloak for the entirety of the Emil Neva-directed video, a look which Ottenberg pulled from Brooklyn-based designer Isabel Hall’s recent graduation collection for Pratt. Ottenberg attended the 117th annual show in early May, which honored former Met Costume Institute curator Harold Koda.
“I saw Isabel Hall’s jumpsuit at the Pratt fashion show, and it was a no brainer that I would use it for something. I love it. It’s got a slight Stephen Sprouse, Debbie Harry 70’s vibe, yet it’s totally modern and cool. Her jumpsuit is fun and the song is super fun, so I thought they worked great together,” Ottenberg commented.
