Gia Coppola, niece of Sofia and no stranger to fashion films, was tapped to direct a short film to showcase DVF’s new collaboration with Current/Elliott. The result, titled “Writer’s Block,” tells a story that has nothing to do with fashion but in which everyone is wearing really, really cute clothes. Also, Ray Liotta is in it.
Tracy Antonopolous stars as a struggling screenwriter in the ’60s-inspired short while Aubrey Plaza’s deadpan voice narrates her quirky, colorful journey that recalls classic ’60s film more than it does Sofia Coppola’s work (her short film for Wren was very Sofia-esque, not that there’s anything wrong with that). Except for maybe the music at the end–scored by Robert Schwartzman, Coppola’s cousin (and Jason’s brother).
Since you’re going to want to buy them, the clothes–vintage-inspired, colorful, and very cute–are available at Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman, Holt Renfrew, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Shopbop, DVF stores and DVF.COM.
