Saks Takes Rome: Part Three

Laid Back Looks For a Leisurely Holiday.

Italians are bar none when it comes to tailoring, rendering suits to a near art form. But there’s a softer side to Italian menswear, too, one that polishes the style of athleisure and elevates the casual spirit of sportswear by combing the heritage of the past with innovations of the future. Find, for example, a tee shirt and joggers from Z Zegna, knit from lush merino wool yet acts like a washable tech fabric.

Scroll below for an exclusive peek at the film, and get the backstory behind it from Aaron Rose himself in our interview with the director.

Fashion and Cinematic Art Collide in Fade to Blue

SaksPOV: We’re all well acquainted with your work. We saw your three-part film for Sutor Mantellassi and loved it. It was a really cool perspective and a great way to reintroduce the brand to a whole new audience. So how did you first become involved with the brand?

Aaron Rose: It was kind of a circuitous route. Anton Magnani, the creative director of Sutor Mantellassi, is a very avid art collector, so I actually met him through the art scene. One night over dinner, we got to talking about Sutor Mantellassi and what the brand represents and we started talking about possible film ideas. That’s sort of how that whole thing came about. It was one of those organic partnerships that just came together through one very inspiring conversation.

SaksPOV: What was the initial spark for this three-part film? Why did you create it in this triptych format?

Aaron: We both liked the idea of doing something episodic. Especially when it comes to short films on the web, it’s nice to create something that rolls out over a period of time. I like the idea of leaving people hanging a little bit, so they look forward to what’s going to happen next. Kind of the way television does it, but applying that to web films.

SaksPOV: This three-parter reminded us a lot of some of our favorite movies. There was a bit of “Virgin Suicides” a little “Far From Heaven.” Where was it you guys shot this? What’s the background on your setting?

Aaron: It’s a really funny story, actually. Originally, Anton wanted it to be in a ’50s modernist home. I live in Los Angeles, so we were looking around here. But it’s really hard to find a unique modernist home in Los Angeles that you haven’t seen in a million films. It happened around this time I was taking an annual family trip to New Zealand, where my wife is from, and on a hunch we decided to look at locations there. We found that amazing house that was more original than any modernist home I’ve ever seen in Los Angeles. When I saw it, I was like, “This place is really fantastic.” It’s so unique and so different than anything that I’ve seen in other films.

SaksPOV: That’s awesome scouting! So about Sutor Mantellassi shoes themselves, the sole is one of the resounding traits. Did that help with the photography of the film? Did that help you tell your story?

Aaron: Yes. It’s so interesting that you asked that. It’s one of the things I noticed most about the shoes. The soles are amazing, they’re all dyed and colored by hand. Originally we wanted to hand-paint all the frames of the film as a direct homage to that process, but because of time and budget constraints, we had to shoot digitally. Though we were able to mimic the Technicolor process intended for film in order to obtain that highly saturated, really crazy color. It’s funny that you mentioned Far From Heaven, because that’s the look Anton was inspired by as well. The idea was to create a film that feels like that time, but is also distinctly modern.

SaksPOV: Was this the first time that you’ve lent your talents to anything fashion-related?

Aaron: No, I do it from time to time. I dabble in it. It’s a chance to flex some cinematic muscle and try some things that haven’t been done before, which fashion is really good for. I find that people in fashion are very open to new ideas.

SaksPOV: It’s great to use your talents in a different capacity, and we’re big fans of the result!

Aaron: Thank you! It’s really a fantastic brand. It’s very rare in this day and age to find something so special, so I’m glad you like it.
