Outlaw Moscow’s “Outlaw!” by Maksim Bashkaev, Dilyara Minrakhmanova, Natalia Solovieva and Ilya Petrov

 We’d only slightly be overstating the case by claiming we live for a well-made fashion film. Fashion in film can make or break a mood, reveal secrets about heroes and villains alike, transport us to a specific time and place. Fashion can live and breathe, moving through seasons and physical space. So why not use a moving medium to capture and describe that movement? Luckily designers and brands are embracing fashion film, more and more, to tell their brand stories. Inspired by BoF’s Top 10 Fashion Films of the Season, we’re going to offer an end-of-season glimpse of some of the year’s best fashion films.

To celebrate the launch of its new scent, the iconic Italian brand united three titans of Italian cinema: director Giuseppe Tornatore, composer Ennio Morricone and actress Sophia Loren.

Scenes of Loren, rolling up her sleeves and cheerfully playing chief builder, bring a lighthearted sense of humour to the film.
