Style Star by Moda e Tecnologia- CINEMA FASHION TECHNOLOGY.

  2. 2. THE SCENARIO The fashion and luxury landscape is undergoing great change. Globalization and technology have considerably increased the opportunities but also the challenges faced by fashion brands, and more and more advertising spend is required to strengthen brand value. Brand identity, with its inherent guarantees, is gradually replacing the increasingly abstract figure of the fashion designer. Runway shows no longer seem the only way to promote fashion in the globalized, technological new world of the 21st century. Luxury brands are beginning to experiment with a mix of new media alongside traditional media. Their objective is to interact directly with the public using web 2.0 tools and mobile communications. The fashion and luxury consumer is no longer seen as a target but as an individual demanding participation, exchange, and co-creation. A new Era is dawning for the fashion and luxury sector and for companies which are at the forefront of this new trend in alternative forms of communication. The world of cinema is getting closer. 1
  3. 3. THE OPPORTUNITY • THE BRAND - aspirational luxury, fashion and design icons THE B AND R STOR L I YTE L NG • THE SHORT FILM - a universal language format • STYLE STAR - a new way to promote short film and brands by means of a series of real and virtual events, using traditional and new media THE PU L C BI Cinema and technology are the new allies of creative communication. Luxury and fashion brands are choosing the short film because it is the natural evolution of brand communication and storytelling, empowered by technology. Style Star is a format which aims to focus on and promote this trend. 2
  4. 4. SHORT FASHION FILM: IT’S HAPPENING Several short fashion films were released in 2008 and 2009. Promoting luxury brands by means of the short film is indeed an established trend. For example: - PRADA invited two-time Oscar winner Pietro Scalia to produce a feature length narrative inspired by nine shorts previously made for Prada by budding international directors; both productions were shown on the brand's website. - TOD’S signed Dennis Hopper on to direct a short, “Pashmy Dream” featuring Gwyneth Paltrow. The four minute film, shot on location in Rome, shows a “Day in the Life” of the actress and of her Pashmy bag. - CHANEL and DIOR short movies are two refined examples of how the short movie can be used to communicate the brand heritage and at the same time convey a contemporary message. - FERRAGAMO celebrated its 80th anniversary with a funny short movie called "The Shoe”. - LOUIS VUITTON engaged the Italian director Edoardo Winspeare to direct "Les Noces De Papier" a short movie of 12 minutes telling the peculiar story of two young and modest people who dream to have a LV bag. The movie also denounces counterfeiting; - INTIMISSIMI entrusted Muccino with “Heart Tango”, starring Monica Bellucci. Others: - ALEXANDER MCQUEEN and John Galliano - YSL - RALPH LAUREN Tom Ford’s movie, A Single Man, will be presented at the Venice Film Festival. The emergence of the fashion designer as movie director and the upcoming short fashion film trend were anticipated by Marina Garzoni in the book “Fashion and Technology” (EGEA 2008). 3
