Cass Bird Directs “Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid’s Sleepover Party in Chanel Couture”
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.
Next up is “Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid’s Sleepover Party in Chanel Couture.”
At a slumber party at The Plaza hotel, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid exchange slouchy nightwear for Spring 2016 Chanel haute couture in a video shot by Cass Bird for American Vogue. The two social media celebrities dance and frolic to Grimes’ “Kill V. Maim” bedecked in lace, ribbon and tulle dresses, offering a strikingly young, modern and light-hearted take on the storied French luxury brand.
