Toronto-based creative agency The Garden would like to introduce you to the all-new IZ – a company dedicated to the creation of sophisticated and functional clothing for people using wheelchairs, founded by renowned designer Izzy Camilleri. The company enlisted The Garden to help reframe and rebrand its business.
Headlining IZ’s brand relaunch is a new social media campaign called “Fashion IZ Freedom,” that utilizes the power of fashion to get the message out about the importance of making the world a more accessible place.
The campaign calls on people to order a special “Fashion IZ Freedom” t-shirt to raise awareness around accessibility issues. Once they receive the shirt, people are prompted with a card to “take a seat” for accessibility issues across North America by taking a seated selfie while wearing the shirt. They are then encouraged to share their pics with their social networks tagging @IZadaptive and #FashionIZFreedom. One hundred per cent of the proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go towards building ramps in communities across North America.

LEGS’ Geremy Jasper has teamed with iconic British clothing brand Belstaff to direct a surrealist film in the cinematic vein of Fellini and Sergio Leone. Outlaws, which stars David Beckham, Katherine Waterston, Cathy Moriarty and Harvey Keitel is a heart-thumping fever dream filled with danger, foreboding and romance.
Shot over six days in and around Mexico City, and based off of a screenplay written by Jasper two years ago, Outlaws is a classic story told in a new way. It combines black and white and colour cinematography to create a hypnagogic vision of the Mexican landscape during the early 1950’s, a strange setting populated by even stranger people, including peculiar circus performers, a blind tarot card-reading seer, motorcycle gangs and sugar skull sporting mariachi musicians.

Throwback Thursday to November 2008 and this piece of branded content for Diesel. “Pete the Meat Puppet” is a sing-a-long-tale from life in the fast lane. The film was created by NYC-based Legs, via Stockholm-based creative shop Farfar, and was part of a series of films launched on the brand’s website.

I like when high fashion doesn’t take itself too seriously. Lanvin is arguably the leader in this category (love this).
Here’s Givenchy’s Fall/Winter campaign featuring models on BMX bikes, playing pinball, basketball and jumping rope. All in the fashion house’s fine clothes and set in a luxurious villa. The Creative direction is done by Riccardo Tisci himself, and it’s directed by Mert & Marcus.

In an effort to get people off their sofas and be move active, French bottled water brand Vittel has created the Couch Converter – yep, they are making your old sofa into running shoes.
Couch converter is available for Vittel’s markets in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Sadly, due to high demand, the company’s cobblers are no longer accepting any more couch designs. But you can see existing sofa to sneaker designs in their gallery.
Scooped from PSFK.

Wow, Mikhail Baryshnikov looks amazing. Ok – Lil Buck looks great too, but Mikhail, man you are aging well.
I love everything about this fashion film for Rag & Bone’s Fall Winter 2015 men’s collection – the casting, the movement, the editing, the music, the clothes. So so good. It’s directed by the lovely & super talented Georgie Greville, Legs Media.

I love how Lanvin continues to create amazing campaigns – always poking a bit of fun at themselves. The new summer film is no exception. I also love that the word “glossy” is in the opening line and the sound of the kettle. Nicely done. I want summer now.
