Any form of art is a form of self-expression. It could be through the way you dress, or how you chose to portray yourself to an audience. In Stella McCartney‘s newest menswear film, breakout actor Ashton Sanders uses both his sense of fashion and his newfound career of acting to express himself.
Know for his role in last year’s Oscar-winning film “Moonlight”, Sanders is a new face in the world of fashion. The House’s Fall 2018 Menswear film was made in collaboration with creative studio Tête-à-Tête, based in Los Angeles. It features Sanders in self-styled outfits drawing pieces from the new collection, and even includes a captivating narration from Sanders himself, giving insight to the audience regarding his style and career.
Tête-à-Tête, a studio founded by filmmaker Austin Lunch and artist Case Simmons, continued the discussion by doing a full Q&A session with Sanders. In it, he explains, “I look at the looks I create or the clothes I wear as extensions of myself, of a part of myself, whether it’s my actor self or just who I am living in the world, and that’s always changing.”
According to Tête-à-Tête, “When paired with Ashton’s own thoughts on fashion and style, our 1-minute short becomes a memorable, visually striking presentation of a young actor and a sophisticated menswear collection.”
Sanders is a fresh face in both the fields of acting and fashion, and he isn’t going anywhere. Here is to many more successful years of Sanders’ self-expression and art.
