Two more beautiful campaign films: Vanessa Bruno, Marni for H&M

Following on from the Prada, Victoria, Victoria Beckham and T by Alexander Wang post below, here’s a quick look at two further SS12 campaign releases this week.

First up is Marni’s H&M spot, shot by none other than Hollywood director Sofia Coppola. The ad stars actress Imogen Poots, and was filmed in Marrakesh, Morocco, at a house that Coppola once went to with friends. It is set to the soundtrack, Avalon, by Bryan Ferry:

 

There’s a great behind-the-scenes video here, too, in which Coppola says she wanted to do something artful that would represent Marni.

And Kate Bosworth returns to Vanessa Bruno again this season, in a beautiful film called Moonlight.

Video preview: Marni for H&M

 

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s to come from the Marni for H&M collection in spring 2012.

“I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favorite pieces in signature fabrics and prints. As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colors, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic adding sporty utilitarian elements,” said the Italian label’s founder and designer Consuelo Castiglioni about the collaboration.

She can be seen styling various looks in the video, which also features H&M’s Margareta van den Bosch and Style.com’s Tim Blanks.
