Rob Ulitski - 25th Jan 2021

Sammy King pays homage to the limitless capacities of female empowerment, in the vibrant promo for Celeste's Love Is Back. 

It's set in a fantastical version of the Big Bang '80s, where the London Stock Exchange is run by women rather than barrowboy brokers - and the global currency is love. Celeste and her girls are working around the clock to help bring love back to the top and to do so, they’ll have to work together to sell stocks via the airwaves - and teach the men how it's done. 

The retro aesthetic and sharp styling exude nostalgic vibes, and DoP Nathalie Pitters matches this energy with effervescent neon lighting and vintage film cutaways.
