Kenzo reveal an exclusive short film for SS14 starring actors Anton Yelchin and Lydia Hearst.
To fully convey the atmosphere of America’s West Coast and the ambience of early 1960’s California, which were big themes from Kenzo SS14 collection, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have collaborated with director Hala Matar and actors Anton Yelchin and Lydia Hearst for a short film.
Replicating old Hollywood movies the film follows the two protagonists as they ride around a movie set in vintage cars and embark on a forbidden romance, visiting various locations such as the beach and the Californian sunset. With surreal stunted conversation, the atmosphere brings us back to how we feel when watching a Rock Hudson movie and when we look at photos of cocktail parties in Palm Springs.
The music, borne of a collective of live musicians, a mini-orchestra narrating the action in each scene, effortlessly channels the dance between man and woman, love and regret. Watch the ten minute film below.
