The worlds of music and fashion are intertwining more and more every day, and the shifts feel more natural than ever. This is why it comes as no surprise that Marc Jacobs made a music video for his Fall 2016 campaign. The legendary designer debuted the clip, helmed by renowned music video director Hype Williams, this morning, and the results are nothing less than we expected from the visionary duo.

Jacobs’ high-class grunge designs and his posse of muses and musicians enter Williams’ neon world and work it for the cameras. An eclectic mix of artists star in the video, including St. Vincent, Missy Elliott, Marilyn Manson, Cara Delevingne, Courtney Love, and Susan Sarandon, all faces for the designer’s campaign.

The collaboration marks many firsts for both Jacobs and Williams—this is their first joint project, and Williams’ first foray into producing fashion content. The duo was bound to work together eventually, seeing as they have admired each other’s work since they met in the early 2000s.

In conjunction with the campaign, Jacobs and St. Vincent front the cover of Billboard’s first Style Issue this month, making him the first designer to appear on their cover. The duo and Williams discussed their collaboration and the intersections of fashion and music in the accompanying cover story. In addition, Jacobs also announced a partnership with Apple Music, where stars from the campaign curate exclusive playlists. Williams and Missy are up now, with more faces to follow.
