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.
