Sure, we’ve heard Jeff sing in English several times. But this is the first time we are getting an original English song from him. And no, that’s far from being the only thing that makes ‘Black Tie’ special. It’s equally traditional, classic, modern, and groundbreaking.🖤
English or not, Jeff Satur still nods to his roots with the traditional Thai sound in the intro. Only to then completely break out of all convention. And society’s expectations. “I was invited into the party of the silence,” Jeff sings in the chorus. Painting the mood for the entire song (in probably black and white). And he goes on to sing, “Be what they’re like and be quiet | I’m in my black tie | Are you all satisfied?” These lines are more than just catchy lyrics, though. It goes way deeper. Oh, how we can simply just not shut up about his way of storytelling. This boy is next level.🙌
The entire song is filled with metaphors and symbols. And Jeff Satur invites all listeners to reconsider what’s behind them all. He challenges us to break the norm and embrace freedom and individuality.
Mansion Valentino has a similar message designed into their ‘Black Tie’ collection. As this piece of accessory became a standard dress code, a symbol of masculine power (and a metaphor for blending into society), the Italian luxury fashion house is also flipping the script by redefining formalwear in their latest collection.
The ‘Black Tie’ music video is a visual feast that perfectly complements the song. And Valentino’s new collection. Besides two looks that might be familiar from the runway for the fashionista listeners, Jeff also wears two custom-made pieces that were created just for this marriage of fashion and music. Love, love, love.
