Dark, well-scored, and sexy, Vis À Vis (a short film by artist Marko Velk and director Skye Nicolas) has all the appeal of a Bond movie... minus the guns and car explosions. This noir-ish short, however, has the added bonus of Isabel Marant's designer threads and executive producer title. Yes, in the under-three-minute piece, model Alexandra Tomlinson looks just as classic and just as badass as Miranda Frost, Vesper Lynd, or Pussy Galore (sorry, we had to), but instead of fighting the bad guy (in this case the frightening "visceral ruminations" in her head) with weapons, she does so with a beaded Marant frock, sky-high stilettos, and the perfect cat eye.
Set against the backdrop of NYC's Dream Downtown, this collaborative film chronicles the plight of long-legged Tomlinson as she dodges terrifying flashbacks in a fantastical collage of close-ups and catwalks. It's very '60s, very moody, yet still very now. And though you might have to watch it a few times to pick up all the subtle drawings, disturbing inserts, and styling choices, at least this Isabel Marant indulgence won't cost you a dime.
