Leave it to Kenzo designers and Opening Ceremony founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim to host a full-on Fourth of July BBQ a Paris. On Thursday, the pair invited guests such as André Saraiva, Rose McGowan, Sarah Andelman, Ellen von Unwerth, and Léa Seydoux to the Jardin d’Acclimatation, where they got their fix of hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, and nineties jams. The occasion (other than an Independence Day celebration for the visiting Américains) was the unveiling of Kenzo’s Fall ’13 campaign. This season, the designers teamed up with Toilet Paper magazine founders (and the evening’s cohosts) Maurizio Cattelan, Pierpaolo Ferrari, and Micol Talso, to create their imagery. The surreal ads (below) star Leon and Lim pals Rinko Kikuchi and Sean O’Pry, who pose among a cast of giant insects, gangs of mice, bananas, kittens hiding in boots, the Fall collection’s eye motif, and Cattelan’s favorite—the tiger dog.
Cattelan—an OC devotee—reported that he was pleasantly surprised when Leon and Lim called to collaborate, and described the shoot as a “creative laboratory.” In addition to appearing in Fall glossies, the ads will be featured in Kenzine—a limited-edition Toilet Paper-esque magazine—as well as on a capsule collection of sweatshirts and T-shirts, which will hit stores this September.
Miu Miu is set to debut the fourth installment of its “Women’s Tales” short film series as part of the Venice Film Festival later this week. Miuccia Prada commissioned the project, which began last year with Zoe Cassavetes’ short The Powder Room), to celebrate young female directors from around the globe and explore feminine rituals and codes. After screening short movies by Cassavetes, Lucrecia Martel, and Giada Colagrande, Miu Miu will present director Massy Tadjedin’s It’s Getting Late Thursday night at Lido’s Sala Darsena. In the film, actresses Gemma Arterton, Rinko Kikuchi, Patricia Clarkson, and Aubrey Plaza get dressed up for a night out in Hollywood (wearing plenty of Miu Miu, of course). Before the crowds get to see the full film in Venice, Style.com has a first look at the trailer here. If you happen to be in Venice for the film festival, you can catch all of the project’s directors at live panel discussions in the Sala Tropicana on August 31 as part of Miu Miu’s Venice Days (a three-day showcase celebrating avant-garde cinema).
