The DVF design machine has been busier than usual as of late. First Diane von Furstenberg went mass—and pint-sized—with a print-heavy collection of designs for Gap Kids. Now she’s teamed with cult-favorite denim label Current/Elliott for a vibrant capsule collection (available now at DVF.com) that is East Coast sophisticate meets West Coast whimsy. The offerings include two pant styles (the Classic Skinny and the Relaxed Straight Leg), a skirt, and a pair of shorts—each of these come in a variety of DVF prints and colors—and of course, a wrap dress (in denim). To capture the essence of this cross-country partnership, Gia Coppola directed a short film. Starring newcomer Tracy Antonopoulos, Ray Liotta, and narration by Aubrey Plaza, the film, entitled Writer’s Block, is a well-conceived fashion fantasy. “I really wanted to do something different. I felt sort of tired of pretty fashion videos,” Coppola told Style.com. While she references Martin Scorsese’s student films and his effective use of voiceover, the short is really a traveling tale of color, kitsch, and a stylish sensory experience. “I wanted to show the clothes in lots of different scenarios,” including, but not limited to, space, the jungle, the beach, and a horror movie. The end result is a perfect cinematic play on the print denim fits. See the full-length video for the very first time exclusively on Style.com, below.
L.A. took New York by storm last night. Wren’s Melissa Coker breezed into town to debut her new Spring collection video (as well as a jewelry collaboration with Fallon’s Dana Lorenz, collaborating right and left this week). “We wanted to capture a specific world,” Coker said, “a place full of humor and charm set, against a perpetual golden hour.” To get it, she enlisted Gia Coppola to shoot L.A. girls Natalie and Laura Love (and one very mouthy, smoking crab), styled by Lula‘s Leith Clark. “Gia has such a thoughtful, beautiful manner about her,” Coker told Style.com. “I really relate to her aesthetic and felt like she perfectly fit in to what Leith and I had been discussing creatively for a film project.” Last night at Mister H at Mondrian Soho, Sofia Coppola and Miranda July—two women who know a little something about filmmaking—stopped by to lend their support. Above, the film premieres exclusively on Style.com.
