Trois Soeurs

Adventures in Monochrome in a Spellbinding French Fashion Short

“When you're a young artist, you don't really have another choice than preserving an independent spirit if you want to make your ideas happen,” says Zoë Le Ber, who stars in the seductively languid Trois Soeurs alongside fellow Parisians Solene Hebert, last year’s face of Nina Ricci, and Priscilla de Laforcade, an actress and member of the indie-pop duo Les Chanteuses. Directed by Bulgarian photographer and filmmaker Elina Kechicheva, the trio form part of a generation of emerging models, actresses and singer-songwriters, with mutlti-hyphenate Le Ber recently directing the exhibitionist art short, Hors Les Murs for fashion and culture title Purple. “French cinema is known for its unexpectedness and accessibility, and today there is still the same drive as the days of the 'New Wave' to do something living and pertinent,” says Herbert.“The cinema is still so young," adds Le Ber. “The nouvelle vague was just the first intense wave of a long series, I hope.”

Up and Out

A Surreal Take on the Age-Old Dilemma of What to Wear

Model Molly Smith finds herself trapped in a never-ending outfit change, wrapped up in various pieces from Miu Miu, Meadham Kirchhoff and Alexander McQueen in today’s kinetic fashion film shot by Joshua Stocker and styled by NOWNESS regular, Agata Belcen. “I wanted to create a film that felt seamless, without the cuts interfering with the experience,” explains Stocker of his first fashion film, set to music by London-based indie pop act, Scanners. “Collaborating with a stylist, we worked out how each piece integrated into the narrative, whether it is a dress that falls to the floor, or a skirt which is pulled up to reveal a new outfit.” The award-winning director is a graduate from London’s Chelsea College of Art & Design and is noted for his visual effects-laden work, including music promos for Skream and Gem Club, alongside a 3D data art film with Google Creative Lab’s Aaron Koblin.

Tory Burch: Making of a Show

Behind the Scenes at the Launch of the New York Designer’s Fall Collection

Catch an insider’s glimpse of the energy that enveloped the Tory Burch Fall 2013 show in Tabitha Denholm’s ethereal short. In addition to the designer herself, models Cara Delevingne and Julia Nobis, stylist Tabitha Simmons, hair stylist Eugene Souleiman and makeup artist Diane Kendal are the protagonists captured in the unveiling of the label’s Gustav Klimt-inspired collection at New York’s Pierre Hotel. Jewel-tone colors, romantic prints and rich embellishment added to the luxe extravaganza, soundtracked here by wistful Canadian duo Blue Hawaii. “Tory is one of the most inspirational and hardworking women I know,” marvels Simmons, who has worked with the designer on all seasonal collections since 2010. “She’s incredibly sharp and notices every single element down to a microscopic level.” This attention to detail has propelled Pennsylvania-born Burch from a philanthropist and entrepreneur to one of the foremost American designers of her generation. As Souleiman raves: “She has exquisite taste and the environment she creates has the same kind of sensibility. I love that she is a woman designing for women, and her collections are always based on her personal style.”
