Kenzo has unveiled its “Season Zero” campaign for Fall/Winter 2017 by enlisting three young directors — Mati Diop, Eduardo Williams and Baptist Penetticobra — to create their respective short films themed “Inhabit the Earth“. The three short films include Diop’s “Olympe“, which features her model-brother Gard Diop as well as Williams‘ “Tzzd” and Penetticobra‘s “Untitled (Juice)“.
“I approach each of my films differently,” Diop told Kenzo.com in an interview about his film. “Intimate and narrative stakes, conditions of production are never similar. But it’s true that a commissioned film or project is something else. I had never been approached by a brand. But when Kenzo reached to me, I didn’t feel like I was solicited by a “brand” but rather by artists who were receptive to my work, who were giving me an opportunity to propose something, to make a film freely within a given context,” he added.
