Synopsis: Synopsis: In the spirit of Lanvin’s founder, the brand asked Edie Campbell (the face of Lanvin’s fall 2013 campaign) to round up her entire family to star in its fall 2014 ads, which coincide with the label’s 125th anniversary. The result is a clan of fashionable Brits (and one very well-tressed horse) posing in Lanvin’s fall duds.
Or as Edie’s father, Roddy Campbell, put it on Twitter, “Lanvin Fall 2014 campaign starring me and three of my kids and their boyfriends and their granny and my ex wife …”
Synopsis: Have you ever found it impossible to say something, face to face, to someone you know, someone you love? The words just won’t come out? A new messaging service, SOMEBODY, by Miranda July could help. It’s the star of her film for Miu Miu Womens’ Tales, the eighth commission in the acclaimed short-film series by women directors who critically celebrate femininity in the 21st century.
Synopsis: Spectacularly creative Dutch duo Lenert & Sander have made a film for COS, The Sound of COS, in which the artists imitate the sounds clothes make. In their studio they crush salt, open umbrellas, slip on oven mitts and stomp about to create the soundtrack for a fashion video. Meta, eh? The concept is ingenious, because as we’re paying heightened attention to the pop of the button, the zip of the jacket and the jingle of keys in a purse, we’re also paying extra close attention to COS’ Autumn/Winter collection in all its lovely detail.
Synopsis: Selfridges’ lead A/W 14 creative project, The Masters, is an exploration of the originators, pioneers and provocateurs that shape the fashion landscape, from Azzedine Alaïa to Yohji Yamamoto.
Each Master has created an exclusive piece or capsule collection that is emblematic of his or her fashion specialism. A cinematic thread ties the Masters’ worlds together – each Master will have a dedicated Oxford Street window, inspired by a filmic genre, from sci-fi to film noir.
Selfridges, in partnership with Vertu, commissioned SHOWstudio to craft a collection of vignettes that each create a different universe, tailor-made for each of the twelve Masters. The result is a selection of twelve stand alone fashion shorts, connected by an overall visual direction, which can also be threaded together as one overarching film.
Each vignette is captured in one single shot, every movement poised and considered. Each has its own individual set, lighting and styling, inspired by the Masters’ windows and the film narrative behind it. Each becomes a piece of fashion in motion – an immersive fashion photograph that spotlights the exclusive pieces that The Masters have created for the project.
Synopsis: Rag & Bone bring in director Wendy Morgan and Choreographer Kyle Abraham to create this beautiful film, part of their Fall/Winter 2014 campaign. Abraham himself and dancer Indigo Ciochetti play out a romantic scene dressed in the upcoming collection, as Morgan describes “a highly visual story that slips between two realms. One is real life New York City, and the other is a heightened, stylised world.”
Synopsis: Elektra and Miranda Kilbey, the twin sisters behind pop act Say Lou Lou, star in Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2014 video. Shot on location in East London, the short film along with the sisters will have you doing a double-take.
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 Weimar influence of Prada’s FW14 collection is brought to the fore as an ambiguous relationship unravels in a bleak landscape of brutalist architecture. Featuring Mica Arganaraz & Karl Kolbitz.
Synopsis: adidas presents its collaboration with performance artist Marina Abramović, unveiling an original, short video celebrating the brand’s partnership and support of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ in Brazil. The three-minute film captures the first ever re-staging of Abramović’s iconic 1970s performance “Work Relation”—which focuses on commitment, teamwork and the strength found in togetherness—reimagined through the lens of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™. This marks adidas and Abramović’s first project together and demonstrates the many parallels that exist between the artist’s piece and the play of any team sport.
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.
