We know, we know, you CANNOT POSSIBLY be expected to keep your wits about you while we bust a DELUGE of Drew Barrymore x Best Coast ’Our Deal’ Supervideo magic at you bubububuWAIT it gets MORE INTENSE. As we mentioned earlier, a big part of what makes this technicolor, multi-generational, mercilessly beautiful vision so engrossing is how involved the costume designer, Alicia Lombardini, was in the ideation of the final look. Director Drew Barrymore’s aesthetic was peripatetic and SPRAWLING but the impressive part is how seamlessly the elements flowed together.

First of all, all the characters from Tyler Posey to Chloë Moretz and Donald Glover to Miranda Cosgrove, and even Bethany “Best Coast” Cosentino’s cameo displayed a convincing, cohesive outfit. Once you’ve suspended disbelief that any warring squads could be SO ATTRACTIVE and well dressed, you can completely imagine each person selecting their respective ensembles as they go into battle.

Since they were outfitting whole entire mobs of troops for both the Day Trotters and the rival Night Crawlers, there were a couple of factors to keep in mind. One, both gangs had to be immediately identifiable as discrete groups and then within each gang, individuality had to be maintained. For the ’Our Deal’ Supervideo, The Day Trotters were all about Dayglo brashness and gold jewelry and the Night Crawlers slunk in the shadows in military-inspired gear and darker hues. How to keep everything within the crews apart? MAJOR ACCESSORIES.

Barrymore explains:
“Alicia will say, like, these people would put their time into making themselves individuals. And I love that. Then you don’t end up with a monochromatic, uniformed world. You end up with something that you can freeze frame for a moment and be like, ’Wow. That person really did deck themselves out.’ It’s very cool.

“I just think, like, this level of detail—having a shiny shoe, or a studded shoe, or a trainer that has the same color palette as the gang’s army jacket with the black and the green—it’s really exciting to work in that level of detail.”

Alicia Lombardini’s approach similarly kept each frame in mind:
“I have an appreciation for fashion that is innate. Styling is telling a story through clothes, through colors, through graphic style. I’ve never been about trends, I’ve always been more about history and an overall tableau. That’s how I approach styling.

“I’m looking at everything I do as a whole. What are all the elements that are bringing [everything] together? It is a team effort… it’s so important to have a view on the other aspects.”
