H&M 2016 Holiday Collection Gets The Short Film Treatment Starring Adrian Brody & Directed By Wes Anderson — VIDEO
The holidays are officially here and you need something more than Cyber Monday or a mug of hot cocoa with whipped topping to remind you of that. H&M's holiday collection, which emphasizes relaxed, wearable, and elegant fast fashion, is on display in Come Together , a short film starring Oscar-winner Adrien Brody and directed by Wes Anderson. If you are a film buff, you are no doubt familiar with Anderson's quirky, bold, and darkly comedic flicks like The Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore. This adorable, warm 'n' fuzzy short film features the Anderson aesthetic —you'd know he directed it based on the the visuals— and captures the essence of the season, with Brody starring as a conductor on a train full of solo passengers who are experiencing a travel delay on Christmas Eve due to weather. They find a creative way to celebrate the holiday and in style.
"The winter train ride, under Wes Anderson's direction, is the perfect setting for H&M's holiday collection full of relaxed, wearable elegance. It's about mixing the informal with a sense of occasion, capturing the holiday mood for both dressing up and getting cozy with loved ones." Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M's Head of Design and Creative Director, said in a press release received by Bustle.
