Haute Style: A Perfect Marriage of Fashion & Film

While fashion and film have a long history of creative collaboration, the explosion of social media has opened up artistic creativity between the two in a completely new medium, as short films have become the new commercial vehicles. Though these mini movies are not so much about fashion as they are about aesthetic beauty in general, it is worth visiting them to see something new, feel stylishly inspired or simply to see what all of the buzz is about. From Prada’s new piece by artist Yang Fudong, YSL’s partnering with Bruce Weber, Pringle of Scotland and Ryan Mcginley along with actress Tilda Swinton, or Dior’s stunning collaboration with filmmakers Olivier Dahan, David Lynch and actress Marion Cotillard, one can only wonder who will be next! Even Chanel’s last commercial starring Audrey Tautou is a testament to the power of experimental relationships in the world of art and commerce.
