The story line for Honor Spring 2015 collection film was already written in the clothes. Back in September when Giovanna Randall presented her collection, Kristin Anderson wrote that the designer’s inspiration was “a wealthy woman, demure and slightly icy, who meets an enigmatic ‘George Harrison-type’ musician and leaves behind her life of order and privilege to follow him down the swingin’ rabbit hole.” What you have above is that very narrative brought to life, written and directed by Rachel Fleit and starring Morgan Saylor.
“I am a huge fan of Honor,” said Saylor, the actress best known for her role in Homeland. “I first attended a show several seasons ago and was wowed. Giovanna has created an extraordinary line that is unique, interesting, elegant, and so fun to wear.” As for a favorite Honor piece, she said, “I have the mohair fur jewel cropped jacket. It’s the only pink thing I own. It is beaded and beautiful. I have to save it for only the most special occasions. I feel like a queen when I wear it—I can’t stop smiling.”
The film is set in the opulent white-marble Woolworth Estate in New York, fitting for a collection that draws from the architectural swirls and embellishments of interior spaces. Saylor plays the young and naive Clementine, who meets the mysterious, older Ivan. She eats some rainbow-colored candy, which induces an acid trip of sorts that includes characters portrayed by Sarah Sophie Flicker and Natasha Lyonne.
