Vive la Chilli Beans!

I have been a long time fan of Belgian retro electro band Vive la Fete.  Lead singer Els Pynoo is a lovely lady and I think she’s one of the few people with an individual style, inspired by sixties French singers like Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, but also by eighties style icon Debbie Harry. I’m not their only fan, a fellow named Karl Lagerfeld also adores them and they have played at Chanel runway shows.

Els (and boyfriend/guitarist Danny Mommens) have been fronting a publicity campaign for a Brazilian brand of sunglasses, named Chilli Beans. The photo shoot took place in Soa Paulo in September and the photo’s are hysterical! Check out the photo’s of Els and the video of the shoot.
