Elle Fanning: Rodarte Muse
Elle Fanning in Rodarte’s new short film.
RODARTE’S YOUNG LOVE: The love fest between Rodarte and Elle Fanning continues. The young actress appears in a short film called “The Curve of Forgotten Things,” a collaboration between Kate and Laura Mulleavy and director-photographer Todd Cole, with a score by Deerhunter. It will be premiered exclusively Tuesday on LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s Nowness.com, which footed the bill for the production.
Cole and the Mulleavys previously worked together on a short fashion film (also done for Nowness) inspired by Rodarte’s spring 2010 collection, which was rather dark. This time the focus is softer, to match the clothes. Cole explains the concept: “It’s inspired by Northern California, and the Seventies. It’s about this girl who exists in this strange place outside of time. She’s digging up things from the land and the past, and she offers them to the sun.” Lest Nowness’ interest and cash reignite the rumors of LVMH’s interest in Rodarte, Cole says the site is just interested in original content.
Looks like a fashion icon in the making!
