This isn’t new, but we thought we’d repost this stunning, simple fashion film by Roman Polanski for Prada, starring Ben Kingsley and Helena Bonham Carter.  A THERAPY is what we mean when we talk about integrating real narrative into fashion, rather than essential making an abstract music video featuring a designer’s clothes, although those can be quite beautiful as well, especially when done by Nick Knight.

Still, there is a special skill in being able to tell a story without pulling focus away from the clothes.
