David Lynch and Dior, Dennis Hopper and Tod Pashmy. Baz Luhrmann and Chanel. If these seem like unlikely combinations, think again. These are just three examples of the growing collaborations between filmmakers and high-end fashion houses. Sometimes called “advertising films” or “short films” or even “mini-movies,” these extended commercials provide filmmakers with opportunities to showcase their artsy sides without the pressures of full-length features. David Lynch’s new Lady Blue Shanghai for Dior, starring Marion Cotillard, demonstrates his sly style while playfully implementing the commercial’s product; the bag is the gag. Check out the link above to watch these art and fashion house films and to learn more about this growing trend in filmmaking.
