Justin Anderson for Vogue Italia: Get Richard

“Fashion filmmaking is a new way to deliver the unexpected; where we can forget the industry standard in order to deliver an intense memorandum. It’s a way to melt traditions or create inspirations. An insight into the soul of a dress; Delving into another level of intrinsic naturalness and purity.” So reads the lovely introduction to Justin Anderson’s fashion film Get Richard, recently picking up traction on the web in several of our favorite fashion blogs. The cinematic short features models Karishma Ahluwalia, Jasmine Sanders, and Amra Silajdzic bounding and gagging designer Richard Nicoll and dropping him off in the desert. Based on a true story, it is a perfect mix of fashion, action, crime and sex.

Richard Nicoll also gives us a great accompanying interview and insight into his process, on full display in the S/S 2012 collection, featuring Richard Nicoll x Manolo Blahnik footwear, seen in Get Richard.
