Pouty-lipped, blond actor Michael Pitt has pulled double duty
for Rag & Bone. Not only does he smolder — and I mean smolder— in super sexified, black and white ads for the brand, but he also directed an accompanying video.
Is there anything more thermonuclear than a multi-tasker? I think not. Michael Pitt and
Astrid Berges-Frisbey star in Rag & Bone's spring 2015 campaign and the
images are almost painful in their expression of romantic longing.
Pitt has fronted R&B's men's campaigns for three seasons now. This is the first campaign that combines men's and women's fashion and his co-star is literally his IRL co-star. Pitt and Berges-Frisbey appeared together in I Origins, so this is a repeat performance for them.
Neither is posing naturally, either! With her legs propped up on the table, and his neck craned in the weirdest way, it's quite a twist... literally. And yes, it makes me want to peep the latest R&B offerings.
The 12-minute accompanying short film, shot in NYC, is Pitt's directorial debut and is slated to launch today. Berges-Frisbey also appears, as does Stephen Graham, a British actor.
Watch the trailer, which is very noir and oozes the same element of longing as the print ad. It's full of shoes, punching bags, and drama.
