Your Social Media Nightmares Come True in KENZO's "The Realest Real" Short
Meet your terrifying new mom, Natasha Lyonne.
Social media isn’t real…or is it? KENZO deconstructs the guise of the online world’s altered reality with a new short film aptly titled “The Realest Real,” which explores what happens when your online dreams come true. But be careful what you wish for — a lesson the protagonist Abby quickly learns as the movie offers commentary on the post-internet age and obsessive celebrity fandom.
Carrie Brownstein of Portlandia wrote and directed the project for Humberto Leon and Carol Lim’s 2016 fall/winter campaign — the KENZO collection is of course a main character alongside Orange is the New Black‘s Natasha Lyonne, who plays Abby’s mom under twisted circumstances. Press play above and be warned: nothing is ever as it seems.
