Though iconic American director Harmony Korine's short film for Proenza Schouler's fall '10 collection officially went live yesterday on proenzaschouler.com, teething problems on the site meant the video was down most of the day.

Korine weaves in some familiar imagery you might recognize from the hugely influential Kids, his first script. Malt liquor, fried chicken, strippers, and old tires compliment the crazily printed pants, leather dresses, and a killer double-breasted fur coat in a way that's ironic but weirdly touching.
