Rodarte and Todd Cole Debut Short Film


A still from “This Must Be The Only Fantasy,” a new Rodarte film by director Todd Cole.

Rodarte designers Laura and Kate Mulleavy have long been inspired by films, and they’ve translated their otherworldly aesthetic to the screen before in “The Curve of Forgotten Things,” starring a luminous Elle Fanning. The designers have again teamed with director Todd Cole for a mesmerizing short film, produced and released by Intel and Vice Media’s The Creators Project. Scored by Beach House and set in Los Angeles, “This Must Be the Only Fantasy” (below) cinematically showcases Rodarte’s spring 2013 collection, which drew heavily from medieval-era design cues including chain-mail armor, marquetry, and corseted silhouettes. “When we conceptualize a collection, we are always thinking about how we can further create an immersive experience,” say the Mulleavys, “one that brings to life the world that we are imagining.”
