Venetian streetwear label Golden Goose Deluxe Brand (GGDB) has composed a love letter to its home city in the form of a film, Letter of Love.
Directed by famed fashion filmmaker Luca Finotti (the guy who makes some of the more viral films in the industry) and released to coincide with the city’s 75th Biennale Cinema, it features Emmanuelle Seigner, Paris Jackson, Roberto Rossellini, Jenke Tailly, and Luka Isaac in a film that highlights both the city and GGDB’s latest threads. Although, as with Finotti’s work, it’s never too OTT.
Filmed using 35mm film by Golden Globe-winning cinematographer André Turpin, five characters are chronicled across the city, all of whom represent GGDB’s own take on what it means to live and work in Venice: emotional intersections, performing arts, logistic struggles, and glimpses of unseen Venice beauty.
The film builds on GGDB’s overall Venice-centered storytelling Vita a Venezia (Life in Venice) in conjunction with Tom Johnson’s printed campaign, and follows immediately in the footsteps of ‘Labor of Love’, an art collaboration with the New York art collective, Sunshine.
The film will be released in eight chapters across September 2018. Watch the film’s trailer above, and follow Golden Goose for more.
