Lady Gaga covered Chic’s 1978 classic “I Want Your Love” as a soundtrack for fashion designer Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2016 Collection promotional video.
The video features a cast of runway models including Gaga herself who goes through various wardrobe changes and struts for the camera starting about half way through the video. With clip ends with her wearing next to nothing.
“Instead of having a traditional show this season,” explains Tom Ford in a post to his website, I wanted to think about to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online. I have always loved “Sound Train” which used to be on TV in the 70’s; as it was as much about the clothes as the music. I asked Nile Rodgers to collaborate on a new version of his great hits from that time, “I Want Your Love,” and worked with Gaga to record the vocals. I then staged a full show in Los Angeles and filmed it with Gaga on the runway, Nick Knight directing and Benoit Delhomme as our director of photography.”
