Native Son, a snazzy and technically savvy brand of men's suit released an art film by Isaac Rentz (an American Japanese born music/art videographer) during its launch of fall/winter 2011 collection this past New York Fashion week. The short film, The Track, The Train, The Traveler showcases three men: the carpenter, the artist, and the filmmaker--all wearing sharp Native Son suits (from the f/w 11 season) while being filmed for a total of 36 hours in a sealed crude room, encompassing only about 10-16 feet of space, and left with just some raw materials and some paint to entertain with.
The film is compelling and beautifully captured in sharp HD. What's more: unlike other fashion films, Issac Rentz is able to create a feeling of certain artistic principles --using contrast, emphasis, as well as patterns and proportion to connect the three stories as a unit.
Again, although, fashion films have popped-up as one of the latest fashion fads as of lately, usually they are nothing but images flashing--with the brand and the clothing designs taking center stage, rather than playing the role as the stylish accent to the picture--the The Track, The Train, The Traveler does not falter under this fashion cliché. Have a watch in its entirety below, and see for yourself.
