Synopsis: British fashion designer Jonathan Saunders celebrates the 10th anniversary of his eponymous label with a short film sure to make waves in the fashion world. Directed by the award-nominated filmmaker Justin Anderson, who’s already created stylish shorts for brands such as Giorgio Armani and Agent Provocateur, “Jumper” takes home intrusion to another level.
When a handsome stranger goes skinny dipping in a suburban family’s swimming pool, each of its members starts developing a personal obsession with him. Reminiscent of David Hockney’s piscines de papier series (just a little bit creepier), it’s an eerie, erotic affair that pays tribute to Saunders’s knack for form and color, and showcases the best of his latest collections.
Synopsis: Willy Vanderperre has teamed up with Dior Homme for the brand’s latest still and moving image campaigns. The film is entitled “Notes of a Day,” with Creative Director Kris Van Assche explaining: “We wanted to imagine a meeting between Joseph Beuys and Christian Dior in the approach to the campaign.” The season’s collection focuses on the idea of what makes a man, with each of the models in the video looking at various aspects of character in their performance.

Synopsis: The KENZO Fall-Winter 2014 campaign takes us on a mysterious journey to an unfamiliar world. A place where the ordinary is slightly distorted, mirrors lead to other dimensions, and the strange and beautiful coexist in singular harmony.
Born of the inspirations for the fall collections, David Lynch and his oeuvre, the advertising presents the KENZO collections for Men, Women, Kids and Accessories. Each image depicts a jarring cinematic scenario, all of which were contrived by KENZO’s creative directors, Carol Lim & Humberto Leon in collaboration with TOILETPAPER Magazine’s creatives, Maurizio Cattelan, Pierpaolo Ferrari and Micol Talso. This is the third occasion the creative fivesome have worked together on a KENZO campaign, having previously come together for the Fall 2013 and Spring-Summer 2014 collections. Where once in the image it was the protagonists dictating the mood, herein lies a world where the subjects are trying to find their way through unknown territory.

The 23-year-old supermodel was first scouted by one of her neighbours a couple years ago; it took a while, because everyone’s well fit in Copenhagen anyway. Now listen as Miss Bender teaches us favourite phrases like “I would like two Danish pastries please” (“jeg vil gerne have to wienerbrød tak”) and “fried steak and parsley sauce” (“stegt flaesk med persillesovs”), then try them out yourself along Copenhagen’s colourful fairytale waterfronts.

Synopsis: Coinciding with our Kate Moss month on Tumblr, Nick Knight releases a fashion film that explores and unpicks society’s obsession with images of celebrities and our voyeuristic tendencies when it comes to icons. The film was shot in 1995 during Knight’s first ever session working with Moss, who was twenty years old at the time and fast becoming a worldwide star. It features footage from security cameras - a nod to the debate and controversy that surrounded surveillance culture at the time of filming - and presents Moss going about a normal day, from waking up to visiting a Madison Avenue studio to returning home. It is only as the film progresses that the viewer realises he is watching Moss from a stalker’s perspective in a sinister play on anonymity, fame and privacy. The work was edited at the time by friend and collaborator Jason Evans.
