Not every creative collaboration executed by a fashion brand has to take the form of a capsule collection, a point Opening Ceremony knows well. Having recruited the New York City Ballet's Justin Peck to choreograph a dance for its spring 2016 show — and hired Spike Jonze to direct a runway show-turned-play exactly a year before that — the brand turned over creative control of its fall 2015 lookbook video to a group of youngsters from Malibu High School.

The result is a short film titled "All of Us," which centers on a remarkably well-dressed breakup — or as director H. Marsalis Adriano eloquently put it, on "the intimacy and solitude of love." Dreamy and color-saturated, with cinematography influenced by Jonze's "Her," it's a beautiful little look into teenage love.
