Best Friends: Fall 2013
“Best Friends” a short film by Lena Dunham and fashions by Rachel Antonoff is brilliant! It is a Wes Anderson meets a documentary style, meets 500 Days of Summer, fashion short for Rachel Antonoff’s Fall 2013 collection. The video observes two best friends living in their natural habitat in New York and decodes their relation to one another. Not only can you appreciate the wit in the commentary but it allows its viewers to see the ready to wear collection lived out in this ordinary scenario. Every girl has a best friend, every girl can relate, and now every girl will want and covet this collection. The styling is so well done, that you feel like we are actually peering in on two New York best friends and their lives.
The video is a great visual demonstration of the attentive detail that Antonoff’s collection has, such as: the friendship-bracelet trimming, the gold half-heart charms on the collars. The designer also creates something for her die-hard fans and label lovers, with sweatshirts that read “Ravenswood” and “El Royale,” making reference to the company’s long time fascination with Los Angeles luxury real estate apartments.
