Many designers use film as a creative outlet through which to express their full visions. For instance, Kenzo’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim released two films in one month, both times collaborating with people in the entertainment industry (Spike Jonze directed the ad for the brand’s new fragrance, while Carrie Brownstein wrote and directed the Fall 2016 campaign short). Yesterday, it was announced that Miuccia Prada, who’s previously worked with mega directors including Wes Anderson, tapped director David O. Russell to work on Past Forward, a short film that will debut during Milan Fashion Week.
But all of that pales in comparison to Tom Ford, who for the second time in seven years has stepped out of fashion to direct a feature film. While we have previously discussed the hubbub surrounding the plot of Nocturnal Animals (which was screened at both the Venice and Toronto film festivals in the past few weeks), the first trailer has now been released, giving audiences a sneak peek at what’s to come.
