Rag & Bone teams up with Movie Legend John Turturro for hilarious short film

Fashion and Film have always gone hand in hand, creating cult classics like Clueless (1995),  Oceans 11 (2001) and Romeo & Juliet (1996). While designers like Tom Ford and Karl Lagerfeld have also built careers as respectable film makers too.

So when we found out fashion house Rag & Bone have teamed up with Goldern Globe-nominated actor John Turturro and two time Emmy-Winner Bobby Cannavale to create a short film called ‘Hair‘, you can imagine our excitement. The film will be showcased at Tribeca Film Festival this month featuring the brands Spring/Summer 2017 collection.

Shot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn by Fred Elmes, the film features an improvised conversation about a man’s particularity for his hair between the two actors. The film is completely unscripted so were expecting some pretty funny moments. Think Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.. except in a barber shop with better clothes.

“It was fun to find the right location that would compliment the Rag & Bone clothing. I scouted several places with Fred Elmes and we felt that this specific classic barber shop was the perfect location. Clothes and hair go together; they’re part of your social identity,”  said John Turturro.

This isn’t the first time these actors have collaborated with Rag & Bone, Hair follows on from the 2016 Men’s project they did together. Turturro continues, “Working with Rag & Bone was very creative and collaborative, with this short, I wanted to convey the spirit of their brand which is fun, lively, and urban with a focus on quality and craftsmanship.”

Check out the trailer below:

Hair will debut during the Tribeca Film Festival®, presented by AT&T on April 21st, 2017 in New York City.
