Fashion, Fairies, And A Hollywood Hobbit
Elijah Wood has been reunited with a cast of fairies, unicorns, and sword-fighting villains—but he hasn’t revived Frodo Baggins. Rather, the actor plays the regal, mysterious role of Trevor in Rodarte’s latest film, This Must Be the Only Fantasy. For their third collaboration with director Todd Cole, Kate and Laura Mulleavy—both of whom are longtime sci-fi fans—tapped Sidney Williams and Guinevere Van Seenus to star in an out-of-this-world epic while donning Rodarte’s Spring ’13 looks. “Our Spring collection was inspired by fantasy and role-playing games, and the film brings to life these ideas,” said the Mulleavy sisters, adding that they always envisioned their pal Wood as the male lead.
“I never think of these films as fashion films,” offered Cole of the project, which was shot in L.A. “I think of Kate and Laura’s clothes as more of a starting point, and then I can create a world for them to exist in.” The full twelve-minute flick will premiere this week on The Creators Project. Catch the trailer’s exclusive debut below, and keep your eye on Rodarte’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, et al. for more sneak peeks at the movie.
