V COLLECTOR'S CLUB PRESENTS: ALEX KAPRANOS - V32
franz ferdinand’s frontman Alex Kapranos just dropped a new single titled
“Summer Wine” with french singer-songwriter Clara Luciani! To celebrate, V are inaugurating his V32 cover for the next installment of our 𝐂𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫’𝐬 𝐂𝐥𝐮𝐛! Shot back in 2004, Kapranos was dominating radio systems everywhere with the release of the global smash hit ”TakeMeOut”, when he was captured and styled by longtime V contributors David Sims and Hedi Slimane! Fast forward to 2020, Kapranos along with Luciani cover the Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazelwood classic, with a bi-lingual twist—as Luciani translates the chorus into French, transforming the track into a modern day ode to the pleasures of Summertime.
