Video: Devendra Banhart for Oliver Peoples by Lisa Eisner

NOWNESS presents Devendra Banhart in a new short film by Lisa Eisner for Oliver Peoples.

“Get in the bathtub! Be together!” Those were the orders given to Devendra Banhart and his girlfriend Rebecca Schwartz for today’s exclusive film, the director’s cut of a new campaign for eyewear company Oliver Peoples [...] In homage to French New Wave classics like Godard’s Une Femme Mariée, Eisner was determined to cast a real-life couple with genuine chemistry, to create “infatuated cant-keep-your-hands-off-each-other moments.” Psych-folk polyglot Banhart and his set designer paramour happily obliged, their liaison unfolding on staircases and shag carpets in the Rainbow House, architect John Lautner’s 1961 Los Angeles masterpiece.

Song: Devendra Banhart “Brindo”
