We Laughed, We Cried, We Went to Co’s Movie

-------



Since branching out to launch their clothing line, Co, in 2011, L.A.-based writer Justin Kern and producer Stephanie Danan have seamlessly straddled the worlds of fashion and film. Each season, they’ve released a mini-movie to complement their collections of easy, no-nonsense feminine separates and dresses. And each season, these shorts have evolved. “The first one was like a trailer, with no talking, and now they’ve become more like movies,” said Kern. Spring ’13 marks Co’s third cinematic endeavor, and the designers teamed up with Oscar-nominated director Stuart Blumberg (whose new movie Thanks for Sharing, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, comes out this August) to create She Said, She Said, a comedic short about a lesbian divorce. This is almost certainly the first fashion film to explore said subject. But even when they’re fighting over assets, stars Marisa Tomei and Élodie Bouchez do the label’s Spring ’13 wares (which include everything from a draped, wing-sleeve black gown to a furry black, white, and pink trapeze top) justice. “We were a bit inspired by clothes actresses wear when they have to go to court,” said Kern of the styling. “I just remember, back in the day, when Winona Ryder went through that whole [shoplifting] ordeal. She looked so pristine in court, and you felt like she couldn’t possibly have committed a crime,” laughed Danan. The movie also stars comedian David Wain, who plays the couple’s lawyer, as well as Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza, who portrays a leather-trouser-wearing temptress. Watch the funny film’s debut above, exclusively on Style.com.

Ready, Set, Co

You can take the film execs out of the film industry, but you can’t take the film industry outta them. L.A. based producer Stephanie Danan and screenwriter Justin Kern may be branching out with Co, a new line of knitted furs, silks, and cashmeres this New York fashion week, but they’re putting their West Coast talents to the project too: They’ve created a video, directed by Breaking Upwards‘ Daryl Wein and starring French siren Élodie Bouchez. Check out the exclusive debut, below. And be sure to check out our New York fashion week preview for more of what you can expect when next week’s festivities begin.

Blasblog From Paris: Backstage Bubbles

-------


I know a few women who say they prefer couture to ready-to-wear because of the lack of frenzy and excitement. But really, it’s all about the alcohol and free food. Back on Monday, Dior invited guests downstairs into John Galliano’s mirrored studio under the salon where he had just debuted his collection. Marion Cotillard hovered by the food and wondered if it was too early in the day to hit the bubbly. Of course it wasn’t. Yesterday, Riccardo Tisci welcomed a whole slew of well-wishers and Champagne sippers to a little tent backstage after Givenchy. His muse, Mariacarla Boscono, held court with Luigi Murenu, while Natasha Poly and Lara Stone asked for creams and bleach to get the black out of their hair. But the most decadent post-show affair was provided by Karl Lagerfeld. There’s always a major crush to see the designer, and the pushy guards have a lot of crowd control on their hands. This time he served drinks and food so that patient types like Fabiola Beracasa and Tallulah Harlech were able to watch the post-show mania with a cocktail while Isabel Lucas, Mario Testino, and Élodie Bouchez made their way through the crush to congratulate the Kaiser. “I think all the designers should do this after every show,” Poppy Delevingne declared. I don’t think she’d find many who would argue with her.
