[PR] In Venice, a transition from “Goo You Are Wearing” to “Who Are You Wearing?”

000085870004I always think it is cool when a porn production is loaned a hand by an outside professional, such as when Eddie Van Halen scored Michael Ninn’s movie “Sacred Sin.” Now Harmony director Scarlett Revell (who I profiled here last year) is working with Atsuko Kudo, a high wattage latex designer who famously fit Lady Gaga.

(Still, I worry about functionality. How can she direct in that red leather eyewear?)

The following is a press release reprinted to enlighten non-adult industry readers about how the porn business talks about itself. It was written by an adult industry marketing professional.


scarlettrevellLONDON—Outrageous and elegant, the glamorous fetishwear of Atsuko Kudo has graced famous bodies from porny pop star Lady Gaga to brainy porn star Brooklyn Lee. Now Kudo is costuming Harmony director Scarlett Revell’s upcoming “Sex in Venice.”

Based in London, Revell first teamed with Tokyo’s Kudo—who collaborated with Lady Gaga for New York Fashion Week’s first latex runway show—in 2012’s “Mind Fuck,” which featured Brooklyn Lee in a latex Kudo creation. Revell herself walked this weekend’s AVN Awards red carpet in a Kudo dress.

“Atsuko makes clothing that looks as good on a woman as coming off,” says Revell. “Brooklyn Lee’s dress in ‘Mind Fuck’ got [Harmony] more fan mail from women than any outfit we’ve ever featured in our movies, so ‘Sex in Venice’ is going to be very, very sexy.

“I know what I like to watch,” continues Revell. “And we can have movies in which women are just as dirty as they are elegant. Atsuko’s dresses are perfect for this.”

Born in Brooklyn, Revell became a Harmony director last year, crafting hardcore scenes that combine European style, American spirit, and international appeal. “Sex in Venice” will be her first production in Italy.

While latex may have a permanent place in the fetish community, Revell and Kudo say its “mystery” is particularly appealing in Revell’s glamorous hardcore productions.

“Latex is like a second skin,” says Kudo in the documentary “Dressing for Pleasure.” “But there are so many things you don’t know. I like this challenge.”

“Sex in Venice” begins shooting this April in villas along the Venice canals. It will be released by Harmony this summer.
