Romin Gavras (Costantin Costa Gavras’s son) is one of my favourite and music video/commercials director.
Last year relased two important commercial spot for Fashion Brand, one of these is L’ INVITATION AU VOYAGE wiht the music star David Bowie for LOUIS VITTON. The story is simple a beautiful young woman hanging out at party as Bowie belts out a harpsichord led version of “I’d Rather Be High” from his latest album The Next Day.
A visual mix between a surreal “Marie Antoniette” party and a Baroque bacchanalia masked ball in Venice.
Fantasy pictures and visual details come together to create tension in an allegory of travel, inviting those who see it to become master of their own destiny.
