Debuted at NYFW, Kenzo’s latest flick, The Everything, chronicles the tale of a band of teenagers with unique superpowers at their fingertips. Milla Jovovich is cast as the matriarch to the unconventional misfits played by Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Sasha Frolova. The storyline traces the kids’ typical teenage troubles while they try to come to terms with their ‘talents’. Their wardrobe? Full-on Kenzo Fall/Winter 2018 threads, of course.

It also marks co-creative director Humberto Leon’s first directorial foray. He follows in the footsteps of Natasha Lyonne, Carrie Brownstein and Spike Jonze, who have all directed films for the Paris-based label. Watch Leon’s full 29-minute film here.

Hollywood’s fresh-faced golden boy is now New York’s man about town. Flanked by Anna Wintour, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Cardi B was Henry Golding at Tom Ford’s show, sitting front row and elbow-to-elbow with the powerhouses. If the seating arrangement seemed random, it was not. The front row at fashion shows are traditionally reserved for the who’s who and its arrangement is an even subtler indication of importance — more so if you’re placed next to Wintour, fashion’s indomitable editorial icon.

Golding was also spotted at NYFW’s other string of events: Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary show, Rimowa’s 120th anniversary dinner and Prada’s Linea Rossa relaunch fete.

Interview Magazine has returned

Last May, Interview Magazine, the title founded by Andy Warhol in 1969 and feted for running un-edited interviews in its entirety, filed for bankruptcy, owing over US$11 million as reported by Business of Fashion.

Less than four months after, the title is resurrected. Last Thursday, it hit newsstands with a September issue starring 90-year-old Oscar-awarded filmmaker Agnès Varda. The relaunch is under the creative direction of Mel Ottenberg and features the work of heavyweights the likes of Petra Collins, Ryan McGinley and Collier Schorr. Though the magazine has a past tainted with unpaid bills under its former owner Peter Brant, it’s now relaunching under Kelly Brant, his daughter, who promises to usher in a new cost-conscious era, as reported by Business of Fashion.
